ODFW hosts Family Fishing Event at Devils Lake April 29

April 24, 2023

NEWPORT, Ore. — Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife hosts a Family Fishing Event Saturday, April 29 at Devils Lake in Lincoln City.

The event takes place 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Regatta Park. ODFW will stock the lake with 8,700 rainbow trout prior to the event, including 4,000 fish that will be released in a large net pen reserved for youth fishing.

ODFW staff and volunteers will hand out equipment and be available to teach kids how to bait, cast, and land their catch. Youth can keep two fish from inside the fish enclosure, after which they can continue fishing in the lake until they reach their five-fish limit.

The fishing enclosure is reserved for youth fishing, but adults can get tips on basic rigging, fish identification, and casting at the event.

Kids 11 and under can fish free at this event. Youth 12-17 need a youth license, which can be purchased for $10 online at the ODFW website, any ODFW office, or license outlet. Licenses will not be sold at the event.

These events are intended to help families learn how to fish together and get outside. There is also a great playground at Regatta Park, so pack a lunch and stay a while!

Regatta Park is located on the southwest side of Devils Lake. From Highway 101, take NE 14th St. east for about one-half mile until you see the sign for Regatta Park on the right. There is parking by the dock, and overflow parking is available along the one-way road in and out of the park.
