Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR) and Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) are pleased to offer the State Park Fishing Equipment Loaner Program!
The program will increase awareness of the many fishing opportunities within Idaho’s state parks. With fishing locations at, or near, most parks, the agencies wanted to eliminate some of the barriers that might coincide with those interested in fishing—such as lack of equipment. Each of the participating parks will receive 16 rods and will have access to tackle and bait for park visitors.
There are currently 5 participating parks and we hope to have another 4 ready to go for the 2022 season!
Participants over the age of 14 will need a fishing license while using the loaner rods. Licenses can be purchased online, by phone, at any IDFG office, or at various convenience stores and outdoor retailers across the state—$11.50 for a daily pass or $30.50 for an annual license.
