Celebrate Kids’ Fishing Day at Gigliotti Pond


Utah Division of Wildlife Resources Press Release

On June 21, the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources will sponsor its annual Kids’ Fishing Day at the Gigliotti Pond in Helper.

From 8 a.m. until noon, the DWR will lend fishing equipment and bait to those who don’t have their own. The U.S. Forest Service will provide a fishing cleaning station. “Personnel will also be on-hand to help parents and their children have a fun and successful fishing experience,” stated DWR Regional Conservation Outreach Manager Brent Stettler. “Before the event, the pond will be stocked with fish.”

A raffle will be held at noon, and every child who attends will receive a prize.

To get to the pond, drive to Helper and leave U.S. Highway 6 at Martin Street. The pond is at the far end of the street.

Gigliotti Pond is accessible to persons with special needs. There’s a restroom at the pond as well as cement sidewalks and fishing bays.

The event is free of charge. No pre-registration is required.

For more information, call the DWR office at (435) 613-3700.
