The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources is busy stocking the Huntington Game Farm Pond with rainbow trout for Kid’s Fishing Day this Saturday. The event will be held Sept. 21, from 8 to 11 a.m. The fishing activity is free and children 12-years-old and younger will not need a license to fish. Children older than 12 will need to bring their license with them.
To ensure good fishing for the eight to 10 inch rainbows, volunteers and wildlife officials will be available to provide individual instruction to young anglers. Children who do not own their own fishing gear can also participate. Wildlife officials will provide rods, reels and bait. All participating children 14 years and younger will also be eligible for prizes.
The wildlife division advises that fishing day participants are limited to two fish and all fishing regulations will be enforced.
DWR conducts several fishing days throughout the year to Emery and Carbon county residents. These events offer children the opportunity to learn valuable fishing skills while participating in a fun filled event.
To get to the pond, drive up the Huntington Canyon Road to the ballpark. Turn right at Huntington North Loop Road sign and travel north for about one mile. The road will bend sharply to the left. Leave the paved road and continue north on the dirt roadway. Follow this dirt road until the Huntington Game Farm Pond parking lot is reached.
