Don’t miss Family Fishing Day

ANTHONY LAKE — A Family Fishing Day will take place July 13 at Anthony Lake. Registration will be conducted at the picnic area and the fishing will run from 9 a.m. to
1 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, the U.S. Forest Service and the Grande Ronde Model Watershed and described as “a unique opportunity for families to learn how to fish together and enjoy the great outdoors.”

Participants will fish from the freshly stocked lake where people will be available to teach youth how to bait, cast and reel in their catch. Adults can get tips on basic rigging, fish identification and casting. Loaner fishing rods will be available to children who do not have equipment. The day will also include learning about the macroinvertebrates that inhabit the lake, and a fish contest will award prizes in several age brackets.

Day use fees will be waived for attendees during the event, but all persons 12 years and older must purchase a valid fishing license, including any adult helping youth fish, prior to attending this event. Licenses cannot be purchased on site. For more information, contact Kayla Morinaga (GRMW) at 541-663-0570 or Tim Bailey (ODFW) at 541-962-1829.
