Over 80 people from southern Idaho and northern Utah braved brisk winds last week and participated in a “Fishing with an Officer” evening at Johnson Reservoir east of Preston.
Local and area Idaho Fish and Game officers brought the Take Me Fishing Trailer to the small impoundment where participants caught bluegill and a few bass.
The trailer is loaded with fishing poles, tackle and bait for use by the public for free on a first-come, first-served basis. And those who registered at the trailer didn’t even need a license to fish, according to Korey Owens, local officer for the IDFG.
Owens joined with Marc Porter, Pocatello; Nathan Stahosky, Malad; Tyler Peterson, Downey; Tom Burkhart, Blackfoot; and regional officer Blake Phillips in greeting and helping anglers. Lee and Janice Purser and Jim Kariger, all IDFG volunteers, also helped register and instruct folks.
