Annual Kid’s Fishing Day in Montana


Central Montana’s 19th annual fishing day for youngsters will take place 9 a.m. to noon, June 9, at Wadsworth Pond on the west side of Great Falls.

As in past years, the Great Falls chapter of Walleyes Unlimited will give away free rod and reel outfits to youngsters who complete a series of educational stations. Again this year, if a child brings a rod and reel, the youngster will receive a free tackle box with tackle.

No fishing license is required that day at Wadsworth and Fish, Wildlife and Parks has stocked several thousand rainbow trout in the pond.

There is no age limit but the activities are geared to youngsters just learning how to fish.

To reach Wadsworth Pond head west on Central Avenue over I-15, turn north on 34th St. NW, then turn west on Wilkinson Lane and follow to the park.

Groups participating include: Walleyes Unlimited, FWP, U.S. Forest Service, Malmstrom Air Force Base and Missouri River Flyfishers.

For more information contact FWP in Great Falls at 454-5840.
