ODFW family fishing event at Hebo Lake April 18

April 9, 2015

TILLAMOOK, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife invites anglers to get out and enjoy a day of spring trout fishing when it hosts a family fishing event Saturday, April 18 at Hebo Lake from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

ODFW will provide equipment including rods, reels, tackle and bait for use during the event while supplies last. Anglers are also welcome to bring their own gear. Angling education instructors and volunteers will be present to provide assistance and demonstrate good fishing techniques.

To ensure that everybody has a good chance of catching fish, ODFW will stock the lake with 3,000 trout just prior to the event.

“This is an excellent opportunity for anyone to discover fishing, or get reacquainted if they have been away from the sport for a while,” said Ron Rehn, STEP biologist for ODFW’s North Coast Watershed.

The event is open to the public, and no pre-registration is required. Anglers 13 years old and younger do not need a fishing license while those 14-17 years of age will need a juvenile fishing license. Everybody else must have an adult fishing license. Licenses will not be sold at the event so individuals planning to participate should obtain them ahead of time from an ODFW license agent, ODFW field office or on-line at www.odfw.com.

Hebo Lake is a 2-acre lake located 3 ½ miles east of the Hebo Ranger Station on the Hebo Mountain Road. From Hebo, take Hwy. 22 ¼ mile east, then turn left onto Forest Road 14. The U.S. Forest Service, which manages the lake and campground, will waive the $5 day use fee during this event. Overnight camping fees will continue to apply.
