Take Me Fishing Trailer

KAMIAH - The Idaho Department of Fish and Game’s 'Take Me Fishing' Trailer will be stopping by Tommy Robinson Pond in Kamiah this Saturday, June 25, 2022.

Take Me Fishing trailers travel to local ponds around the state and are loaded with loaner fishing rods, tackle, bait and staffed by experienced anglers. All budding anglers have to do is show up at a fishing trailer event with a willingness to learn, and most important, a desire to have fun.

The trailer will be at Tommy Robinson Pond from 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. All equipment and bait will be provided, and no license is required to fish while the trailer is on site.

Wrapped with vibrant fish illustrations, they're hard to miss. IDFG staff will help those new to angling get started – from casting instructions to baiting hooks. The idea is to make the equipment and instruction available to children who do not have a family tradition of fishing.

"The goal is to get kids excited about fishing," said Evin Oneale, Fish and Game conservation educator. "We've got a serious situation around the country right now where kids are not getting outside as much as they could, and fishing is a great way to get kids introduced to the outdoors."

Before and after the event, fish licenses are required for anyone 14 years of age and older.

Tommy Robinson Pond is located on Lawyer Creek Road in Kamiah.
