DWR Press Release
On Saturday, June 13, the Division of Wildlife Resources will sponsor its annual Kids’ Fishing Day at the Gigliotti Pond in Helper. From 8 a.m. until 11 a.m., the DWR will lend fishing equipment and bait to those who don’t have their own.
“Personnel will also be on-hand to help parents and their children have a fun and successful fishing experience,” said Brent Stettler, DWR regional conservation outreach manager. “Before the event, the pond will be stocked with fish.”
There will be prizes for kids under 14. Prizes may be picked up when the family leaves the pond.
