FISHING — Stocked with fishing tackle, Idaho Fish and Game's Take Me Fishing Trailer  is scheduled through out North Idaho in the next few weeks. The next event is Thursday at Hauser Lake.

Fishing equipment and bait can be checked out for free during the scheduled times listed. Reservations are not needed and equipment is checked out on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Participants will be able to fish without a license during the hours of the events at the event locations, however all other rules such as size limits and species limits apply.

Idaho children 13 years old and under can always fish for free. These events give their parents, older siblings and friends the opportunity to try fishing without purchasing a license.

The only thing kids and their parents need to do is show up!
