Let’s Go Fishing/Vamos a Pescar – Eagle Island
Memorial Day weekend marks unofficial opener to fishing season in Idaho, and to kick off the season, Idaho Fish and Game and State Parks have partnered with local Spanish-language radio stations to create a community event to introduce English and Spanish-speaking residents of southwest Idaho to fishing and recreational opportunities at the area’s state parks.
The pond will be stocked with trout prior to the event, and Fish and Game fishing trailer staff will provide bait, equipment, and instruction for catching fish. Anglers who check out rods from the fishing trailer do not need a license to fish at the event, and staff will help clean fish that are caught for attendees to take home.
The event will also include hourly fly-casting lessons, kid’s activities, a live radio broadcast, and a food truck.
This event is hosted in partnership with Idaho Department of Fish and Game, Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation, and Radio Rancho stations “La Gran D” and “La Poderosa.”
