Those who missed out on The Idaho Department of Fish and Game’s “Take Me Fishing” trailer at Johnson Reservoir last month will have two more opportunities to fish for free at Johnson Reservoir later this month.
The trailer will be at the impoundment on Saturday, July 27, from 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. and again on Monday, July 29, from 5-8 p.m. The reservoir is located approximately three miles east of Preston on East Oneida St.
Fish and Game officers from Franklin County and throughout the southeast region will be there to help anglers.
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 if participants register at the trailer, they don’t even need a license to fish, according to Jennifer Jackson, public information officer for the IDFG.
“Come out to this unique meet-and-greet where you can fish with the Fish and Game officers,” she said. Jackson said people who do not know how to fish should come to the event.
“Those new to the sport can receive assistance with basic fishing skills, from tying knots to casting to reeling in a feisty fish. The “Take Me Fishing” trailer isn’t just for kids either. Everyone is welcome,” she said.
Those who show up will have a chance to catch bluegill, perch and even a rainbow trout, said officials.
