YOUTH FISHING -- A trailer full of fishing gear for kids to borrow and use at a nearby trout pond will debut this week at three locations on the Idaho Panhandle.
The Idaho Fish and Game Department's “Take Me Fishing” trailer is scheduled to be stationed at 28 events in May and June. The first gigs are:
- Tuesday, 4 p.m.-6 p.m., at Post Falls Park,
- Thursday, 4 p.m.-6 p.m., at Cocolalla Lake,
- May 7, 1 p.m.-5 p.m., at Fernan Lake.
Fishing equipment and bait can be checked out for free during the times listed. Reservations are not needed and equipment is checked out on a first-come, first-served basis.
Participants will be granted a permit to fish without a license during the hours of the events, however all other rules apply, such as size limits and species limits.
Idaho children 13 years old and under can always fish for free.
