Families are invited to come out and learn how to fish at ponds around the Treasure Valley. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is bringing out the Take Me Fishing trailer for more than 25 appearances this spring. The first event of the 2017 pond tour was Saturday at Kleiner Pond in Meridian.
During a fishing trailer event, people are on hand to give lessons on casting and how to bait a hook. “We have rods and all kinds of things that we let out for the purpose of getting them involved in fishing,” said Gary Heller of the Idaho Dept. of Fish and Game. “So when a trailer is on site at various ponds around the valley, adults can fish without a license.”
