ODFW will host youth fishing event May 21 in Bend

May 13, 2016

BEND, Ore. – Young people interested in angling will be offered a great fishing opportunity by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife on Saturday, May 21 at Pine Nursery Pond, located at Pine Nursery Community Park in Bend.

To boost anglers’ chances of catching fish, ODFW will stock the pond with legal- and trophy-sized rainbow trout prior to the event. Resident bluegills in the pond are also available to fish.

The event is open to persons 17 and younger. ODFW will loan out fishing rods, reels, tackle and some bait on a first-come, first-serve basis between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Anglers 11 years of age and under can fish for free. Anglers ages 12-17 will need a youth license to participate, and licenses will not be sold at the event so individuals planning to attend should obtain their licenses ahead of time from any ODFW license agent.
