Construction Forced Move of July 30 Free Fishing Event

The free fishing event planned for Saturday, July 30, at the Ryder Park Pond just south of Idaho Falls, is being moved to the Gem Lake Boat Ramp because of construction delays at the newly developed Ryder Park Pond.

While the new pond has been filled, landscaping work needs to be done along the shore before fish can be stocked. Once site work is completed a grand opening event will be announced.

The new "Take Me Fishing" trailers have been a big hit all across the state. Wherever the trailers show up, it's free fishing for whoever checks in. Not only is the fishing free, but the trailers are completely stocked with loaner rods & reels and plenty of bobbers and worms.

The event will take place at the scheduled time of 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will be the final scheduled trailer event for eastern Idaho this summer. The Gem Lake Boat Ramp is located south of Idaho Falls, just off of South Yellowstone Highway on West 49th South.
