Sego Prairie Pond in Kuna is stocked with 1,000 rainbow trout
The Idaho Department of Fish and Game was out at Sego Prairie pond this morning stocking it with 1,000 rainbow trout in preparation for tomorrow's big opening day of fishing in Kuna at the pond.
Mike Borzick, with the city of Kuna, was kind enough to snap some photos this morning of the fish stocking and send them to me.
Dedication ceremonies for Sego Prairie Pond, the Treasure Valley’s newest community fishing pond, will take place on Saturday, March 13. The city of Kuna will host a grand opening celebration and fishing activities at the new pond from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Sego Prairie is off Ten Mile Road, between Deer Flat Road and Boise Street. The pond is at the end of Sego Prairie Street.
Anglers of all ages are invited to try their luck, and no fishing license will be required during the special event. Fish and Game staff will have the “Take Me Fishing” trailer on site with loaner rods available for use.
The community pond project was initiated last year by the City of Kuna.
“For years now, local kids have had no place to bobber fish in the Kuna community,” Fish and Game fishery manager Jeff Dillon said in a press release. “We’re excited to see the City of Kuna taking up the cause and developing Sego Prairie Pond as a fun, safe place for young anglers.”
Fish and Game will stock Sego Prairie Pond with trout in advance of the grand opening, and trout stocking will continue every few weeks this spring and fall.
