Three ponds in Idaho County will host Free Fishing Day events this Saturday, June 13.
Events start at 9 a.m. at Karolyn’s Pond in Elk City, Wilkins Pond in Grangeville (south of town off U.S. Highway 95 and Fenn Pond at Kooskia (five miles from Lowell n FS Road 223).
Idaho Fish and Game hosts the annual event for residents, nonresidents, as well as veteran and novice anglers of all ages to celebrate the day by fishing anywhere in Idaho without a license. Even though a fishing license is not required for this special day, all other rules, such as limits and tackle restrictions, still remain in effect.
Free fishing day does include salmon fishing; anglers do not need a license or salmon permit, but they are still subject to all bag and possession limits.
At these area fishing events, staff and volunteers will be available to help novice anglers learn the basics of fishing. Contests, activities and prizes will be awarded during these events. All of these locations will be freshly stocked with hatchery rainbow trout.
