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.

Idaho Department of Fish and Game officer Tom Burkhart, Blackfoot, helps Preston resident Tate Purser, 8, with a bluegill at Johnson Reservoir on Monday, June 8. Purser was catching fish almost every cast using a bobber and a worm. He also caught his first bass. Purser is the son of Cody and Kathryn Purser.
