Family Fishing Event featured during Family Fun Day

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

CHARLESTON, Ore – A Family Fishing Event is set for Saturday, April 27, 10 a.m. – 2p.m. at Middle Empire Lake as part of Coos Bay’s annual HOPE Family Fun Day.

ODFW staff and volunteers provide everything you need 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 shellfishing. Adults need a one-day or annual Oregon angling license. Licenses are not for sale at this event. All state fishing regulations continue to apply.

A feature of the ODFW Outdoors Program, this fishing event is designed to introduce kids and their families to fishing. ODFW has been partnering with the Bay Area Hospital’s Kids Hope Center to host the event during Coos Bay’s annual Family Fun Day.
