Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The Division of Wildlife Resources in partnership with KUSA radio, the U.S. Forest Service, Carbon County Recreation and the Kiwanis Club will sponsor a Kids' Fishing Day at the Gigliotti Pond in Helper on Saturday, June 11. The event will run from 9 a.m. until noon. Rods, reels and bait will be provided for persons who don't have their own. Kids, 12 years of age and under, can put their names in a fish bowl and receive a prize at noon or thereabouts. There will be free hot dogs and drinks.

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. Youth, age 14 and over, need a $26 license if they wish to fish the entire year. One-day and seven-day licenses are also available at a reduced rate. The limit is two fish at the Gigliotti Pond. Prior to the event, the pond will be freshly stocked with trout to ensure good fishing.

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 Division of Wildlife Resources with sportsmen dollars. For more information, contact Brent Stettler at: 435-613-3707.


For persons with disabilities, the Division of Wildlife Resources and its partners will also host a special day of fishing on the previous Wednesday, June 8 at the Gigliotti Pond. Rods, reels and bait will be provided. Both adults and children with disabilities are invited to fish on this day. Some persons with disabilities are eligible for free fishing licenses. If you wonder if you may be eligible for such a license, please call the Division of Wildlife Resources in Price at 613-3700.
