Free Fishing Day!

Grab your rod and reel, take a kid and cast your line…

Who doesn’t love fishing especially free fishing?  This family oriented event is a great opportunity to get out and enjoy a day of fishing sponsored by Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.  The fun filled event is open to anyone wanting to attend and will be located at Trojan Ponds northeast of Rainier, Oregon.  Check out the details and plan to attend if you live close by!  Maybe you or your fishing partner will hook the big one.  More importantly, maybe someone you know will become hooked on the outdoors!

“The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will host a free family fishing event at Trojan Pond on Saturday, April 22 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.”

‘“Trojan Ponds is an idyllic setting for a day of getting outside and fishing with the kids,” said Jeff Fulop, family fishing event coordinator for ODFW’s North Willamette Watershed District. “We want to make this as fun and easy as possible for everyone.”’

“The event is open to the public, and no pre-registration is required. Fishing licenses are not required, either, because April 22 is the first of eight free fishing days in Oregon this year authorized by the state legislature.”

“Trojan Pond is a 15-acre pond located approximately 4.5 miles southeast of Rainier on the north side of Hwy. 30 at the old Trojan nuclear facility site. The pond is located on the right side of the road as soon as you turn onto the Trojan Access Road.”
