‘Take me fishing’ trailer aimed at kids

By The Spokesman-Review
 

Idaho Fish and Game will be wheeling out “Take Me Fishing Trailers” packed with fishing rods and tackle for Idaho Panhandle kids to use free at trout-stocked ponds in June.

The “Take Me Fishing” trailer debuts this season on June 2, from 4 p.m.-7 p.m. at Fernan Lake and then on June 4 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at Post Falls Park. 

Fishing equipment can be checked out for free on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations are not needed.  Participants who register will be granted a permit to fish without a license.  If they get hooked on fishing after the event, parents will have to purchase a license. 

However, Idaho children under the age of 14 can fish for free.

Stocked with basic fishing equipment and information, the trailer wrapped with eye-catching fish illustrations is hard to miss.  The fishing trailer parks near waters that are stocked with fish.

June 9: Round Lake, 4 p.m.-7 p.m.

June 11: (Free Fishing Day in Idaho) Rathdrum City Park. Time TBA.
