Kids fishing day at Gigliotti Pond Saturday
The Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) will once again sponsor a Kids' Fishing Day at the Gigliotti Pond in Helper. The day will be Saturday, September 24. The event is free.
A fishing license is not required for anglers under 14-years of age. Fishing opens at 9 a.m. and continues until noon.
Just prior to the event, the DWR will restock the pond with a truckload of rainbow trout. The DWR will have rods, reels and bait for those children who don't have their own equipment or tackle.
All kids under 14 should register when they arrive at the pond, so they become eligible for prizes from the drawing, which will be held at noon
To get to the Gigliotti Pond, drive to Helper and exit U.S. Highway 6 at Martin Street. Follow Martin Street to the end, where the pond is located. The limit is four trout.
All largemouth bass and bluegill must be immediately released. For more information, contact Brent Stettler at the Division of Wildlife Resources office in Price at: 435-636-0266.
