Family fishing event April 28 at Trojan Pond

April 23, 2018

CLACKAMAS, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will host a family fishing event at Trojan Pond on Saturday, April 28 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Designed for kids and their families to learn about fishing, ODFW and will provide everything anglers need to catch trout. To maximize participants’ chances of catching fish, ODFW will stock the pond with hatchery-reared rainbow trout just prior to the event. Staff and volunteer angler education instructors will be on site during the event to hand out free loaner gear, bait, and instruction – all free of charge while supplies last.

“Trojan Pond is a great place to get outside for a day of trout fishing with the kids,” said Jeff Fulop, family fishing event coordinator for ODFW’s North Willamette Watershed District. “We want to make this as enjoyable as possible for everyone.”

The fishing is free for kids 11 years of age and younger. A youth license is required for anglers 12-17 years of age and can be purchased for $10 on-line at ODFW’s website (www.myodfw.com), or at any ODFW field office or retail license agent. Adults are also welcome to fish but must have a valid fishing license in possession. Licenses will not be sold on site the day of the event so individuals planning to attend should purchase their license ahead of time.

Trojan Ponds is one of more than 350 water bodies in Oregon that ODFW regularly stocks with trout. Persons interested in fishing can explore many other opportunities by perusing ODFW’s stocking schedules, maps, guides and other resources at ODFW’s website, located at www.myodfw.com under the “Fishing” tab.

Trojan Pond is a 15-acre pond located approximately 4.5 miles southeast of Rainier on the north side of Hwy. 30 at the old Trojan nuclear facility site. The pond is located on the right side of the road as soon as you turn onto the Trojan Access Road.
