Family fishing event in Grants Pass

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

CENTRAL POINT, Ore – Enjoy a free fishing event Saturday, May 4 at Reinhart Park Pond in Grants Pass, 9 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The pond is stocked with rainbow trout, including some trout in the 12 to 14-inch range.

ODFW staff and volunteers provide everything needed to fish and will teach new anglers how to rig their line, cast a rod, land a fish and identify their catch. This is a great opportunity for families to learn how to fish together and spend time in the outdoors.

Kids 11 and younger can fish for free while those 12 to 17 need a $10 youth license that is also good for hunting, fishing, and shell-fishing. Adults need a one-day or annual Oregon angling license. Licenses are not for sale at this event, and all fishing regulations continue to apply.

A feature of the ODFW Outdoors Program, this free fishing event helps introduce kids and their families to fishing. ODFW partners with the Crater Bass Club to host the event.

Directions to Reinhart Volunteer Park Pond: From I-5, take Exit 55 and go two miles on Grants Pass Parkway. Turn right onto SE M Street which becomes SW Bridge Street. Go one mile and turn left onto Lincoln Road/OR-260 for almost a half-mile. Turn left onto Webster Road to the park. Look for a banner and racks of fishing rods by the pond.
