We are gearing up for Dworshak’s 23nd annual Kids Fishing Day. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, May 18 from 8:00-1:00 at Tunnel Pond, near Orofino, ID. The Hatchery will provide all fishing gear, bait, and ice for your catch and will even teach you how to land, clean, and cook your fish. If you are 14 and younger all you need to do is grab an adult and come out to the Pond.
Many agencies are joining forces to make this year’s Kid’s Fishing Day fun and educational. Kids can practice the art of Gyotaku, Japanese fish printing, can create large colorful flies, and can learn all about fishing, fish and what fish eat! The IDF&G “Let’s Go Fishing” trailer will be there and Bobber the Water Safety Dog may even make an appearance!
As in years past, parking at Tunnel Pond is limited so there will be a free shuttle from the parking lot below Orofino High School, Riverside Ave, to the pond.
This is a great chance for kids and their families to get outside, enjoy nature, and catch a few fish!
Hope to see you there!!!
