Anyone looking to try fishing for free is invited to visit one of 17 fishing trailer events hosted by Panhandle Fish and Game staff during May and June. Geared toward new anglers, these events loan out equipment and provide assistance so all participants have to do is show up.

 

No prior registration is required and everyone is welcome; participants only need to stop at the trailer to sign-in, check out equipment, receive bait and request instruction. No fishing license is needed by registered participants while the fishing trailer is present. Before and after the event, a fishing license is required for anyone 14 years and older.

 

During the events, Fish and Game staff will be on-hand to help both kids and adults learn fishing basics. Families looking to spend more time outside can use these events to see just how fun and easy it is to fish their neighborhood pond.

 

Anglers should bring a cooler if they’d like to keep their catch. Most waters visited by the trailer are stocked with rainbow trout and have a six trout bag limit.

 

To learn more about the Take Me Fishing Trailer, contact the Fish and Game Panhandle office at 208-769-1414. The statewide fishing trailer schedule is available at https://idfg.idaho.gov/fish/trailers.
