ODFW to host family fishing event at Sheridan Pond May 14

May 10, 2022

CLACKAMAS, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife invites you to a free family fishing event on Saturday, May 14 at Sheridan Pond from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Registration is not required.

The pond will be stocked with rainbow trout shortly before the event. ODFW will provide equipment including rods, reels and bait for use on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees are welcome to bring their own fishing gear. Angling education instructors and volunteers will be present to answer questions and offer assistance.

Anglers ages 11 and under can fish for free, while those 12-17 will require a youth license, available for $10 at ODFW's website (myodfw.com), ODFW offices, and license agents. Adult anglers will need a regular fishing license. Licenses will not be sold on-site the day of the event, so people planning to participate should get their licenses ahead of time.

Sheridan Pond is one of more than 350 water bodies in Oregon that ODFW regularly stocks with trout. Stocking schedules, maps, guides and other fishing resources are available at www.myodfw.com under the "Fishing" tab.

Sheridan Pond is a 2 ½-acre pond located on the edge of town. An old mill pond, it has plenty of bank access, parking, and a restroom. To get there take Hwy 18 to Exit 33 onto Balston Rd Go south on Balston Rd approximately half a mile and turn left onto a gravel road leading about a quarter-mile to the pond.
