May will be a busy month for Fish and Game's fishing trailer, with more than a dozen fishing events scheduled around the Treasure Valley and beyond.
To learn more about the trailer, contact the Fish and Game Nampa office at 465-8465. A complete fishing trailer schedule is available at http://fishandgame.idaho.gov.
A fishing license is not needed by any participant that registers at the trailer for the duration of the event, regardless of age or residency. "Everyone is welcome at these events, but we want to make a point of inviting kids and their parents who have an interest in fishing but lack the equipment and perhaps the knowledge to get started," regional conservation educator Evin Oneale noted. "The only cost is a bit of time, and the idea is to help people gain enough fishing experience and confidence to strike out on their own and enjoy fishing as a fun, family activity."
