Fishing Trailer Schedule for May

The month of May will be busy for Fish and Game’s fishing trailer, with 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 statewide fishing trailer schedule is available at

A fishing license is not needed by any participant registering 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.”
