Youth fishing event Sunday at Siletz Tribe hatchery

Thursday, July 6, 2017

NEWPORT, Ore. – Youth 17 and younger are invited to a free fishing event on Sunday, July 9 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Siletz Tribe’s Lhuuke Illahee Hatchery near Logsden.

The event is sponsored by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians. It will take place at the hatchery pond, which has been stocked with rainbow trout for the Siletz Tribe’s annual Culture Camp and this public event.

A feature of ODFW’s Outdoor Program, the fishing day will include everything participants need to enjoy some quality fishing, including rods, fly rods, reels, tackle and bait. Volunteer instructors will be on site to demonstrate how to gear up, cast, land and even clean fish.

The event is open to everyone, and no pre-registration is required. Anglers 11 years old and younger do not need a fishing license. However, anglers 12-17 years of age will need a youth license, which can be purchased for $10 at any ODFW license agent, ODFW office or on-line at ODFW’s website. The $10 youth license includes angling, hunting, shellfish, and the Columbia River Endorsement. Licenses must be purchased in advance as they will not be sold on-site the day of the event. Admission is free, and participants must be accompanied by an adult. Anglers are subject to a two-fish bag limit.

To get to the Lhuuke Illahee Hatchery from the coast via Hwy. 20, take Hwy. 229 north to Siletz and turn right (east) on Logsden Rd. The hatchery is five miles past the Logsden Store on the right (milepost 13). Parking will be available at the hatchery or as marked along the Logsden Road.

If driving from the I-5 corridor, take Hwy. 20 west to Blodgett, and then go north on the Summit Highway (Hwy. 180) toward Nashville.  From Nashville, go north on the Logsden Road (Hwy. 410) for about nine miles.  The hatchery will be on your left near milepost 13.
