DWR will provide tackle and teach kids how to fish
Huntington – The Division of Wildlife Resources is busy stocking the Huntington Game Farm Pond with rainbow trout for a Kids’ Fishing Day.
The event will be held Sept. 21, from 8 to 11 a.m.
The event is free. Children under 12 years old don’t need a license to fish. Those 12 years of age or older need to make sure they bring their license with them.
To ensure good fishing for the 8- to 10-inch rainbows, volunteers will be available to provide individual instruction. If you don’t have your own fishing equipment, the DWR will provide rods, reels and bait. Kids under 14 years old will also be eligible for prizes.
For all participants, the limit is two fish.
To get to the pond, drive up the Huntington Canyon Road to the ballpark. Turn right at the Huntington North Loop Road sign, and travel north for about one mile. When the road bends sharply to the left, leave the asphalt road and continue north on the dirt road. Follow the dirt road until you reach the parking lot at the side of the pond.
