Head on out to Sego Prairie Pond today, June 11, for Free Fishing Day. If you see a newspaper editor wearing a Cub Scout leader uniform, that would be me.
Personnel from Fish and Game’s McCall and Nampa Hatcheries released about 500 catchable-sized rainbow trout at Sego Prairie Pond at Nicholson Park in Kuna on Monday, just in time for today's Free Fishing Day event. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game invites veteran and novice anglers of all ages, residents and nonresidents alike, to celebrate the day by fishing anywhere in Idaho without a license.
In Kuna, Sego Prairie Pond in Nicholson Park, is at the end of Sego Prairie Street, off Ten Mile Road.
Though fishing license requirements are suspended for this special day, all other rules, such as limits or tackle restrictions, remain in effect.
“Free fishing day provides a great opportunity for novices to give fishing a try and perhaps develop it into a life-long pursuit,” Fish and Game regional fish manager Jeff Dillon said.
