Groups to host Kids Fishing Day @ Porcupine Ranger Station
Jul 9 @ 8:00 am – 2:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Bighorn National Forest, Wyoming Game and Fish Department and Trout Unlimited will host Kids Fishing Day on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Porcupine Ranger Station pond.

“This is an opportunity for kids to be involved in an outdoor activity and perhaps create a lifelong passion for fishing,” said Bighorn National Forest wildlife biologist Beth Bischoff.

Youth ages 13 and younger are invited to attend with a parent or guardian. Children age 13 years and younger who are Wyoming residents do not need a fishing license. Non-resident children 13 and younger must have an adult with a valid Wyoming fishing license on site. State regulations and creel limits apply.

This event is free.

Volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and provide assistance or instructions on casting techniques, knot tying, angler ethics and fish conservation and ecology.

Participants should be prepared for fishing and mountain weather and are encouraged to bring their own fishing tackle, rain gear, layered clothing, snacks, coolers with ice for transporting fish, sunblock and insect repellent.

Fishing bait will be provided. Fishing rods will be available for use by children who do not have their own, but participants are asked to bring rods if possible.

Porcupine Ranger Station is located on Forest Service Road 13 off U.S. Highway 14A.

For directions to the fishing pond or other questions, please contact the Medicine Wheel Ranger District in Greybull at 765-4435.
