FISHING —  Idaho Fish and Game officials plan to stock 500 rainbow trout into Moscow's Hordemann Pond this week to give youngsters an autumn treat.

Located off Eisenhower Street between D and F streets, Hordemann Pond is a year-round fishery popular with kids and their families,not to mention wildlife watchers attracted to the critters drawn to this unique water source. Great blue herons, osprey, turtles, and frogs are not uncommon sightings at the pond. 

Youths fish for free at the pond until they're 14, the age at which theny must buy an Idaho fishing license.

Because the pond water gets quite warm in summer, trout-fishing catch rates are best during the months of April, May, October and November.
