Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Gigliotti Pond in Helper is going to be busy this week.

On Wednesday, Castle Country children and adults with special needs will get a chance to catch their limit of fish at a free fishing day from 9 a.m. to noon. On Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Division of Wildlife Resources in partnership with KUSA/KASL radio and the Kiwanis Club will sponsor a Kids' Fishing Day.

At both events, sponsors will provide bait for everyone and poles for those who do have them. Lunch will also be provided.

Free Fishing Day has attracted a host of sponsors: Manti-La Sal National Forest, UDWR, Arch Western Bituminous Group, Active Re-Entry, Carbon County Bass Masters, Emery County Recreation, Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife, National Wild Turkey Federation, Waste and Water Logistics, Helper City, Castle Valley Center and Four Corners Behavioral Health.

At Kids' Fishing Day, youngsters 12 years of age and under can sign up for a drawing, which will be held at 2 p.m. The Kiwanis Club is sponsoring the prizes. KUSA/KASL will provide hot dogs and drinks. The event is free of charge.

Children under 12 don't need a license to fish. A license for 12 and 13 year-olds costs $5 and is good for an entire year. Persons, age 14 and over, need a $26 license, which is valid for 365 days. The limit Saturday is two fish. Prior to the events, the pond will be freshly stocked with trout to ensure good fishing.

The Gigliotti Pond is located at the end of Martin Street in Helper. The pond is handicap-accessible with concrete sidewalks, covered pavilions, and modern restrooms. The pond and its accoutrements were funded by the DWR with sportsmen dollars. For more information, contact Brent Stettler at 613-3707.
