Kid's fishing day at Spearfish Park, June 9

Published May 25, 2018

PORTLAND, Ore. - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers invites the public to a free kid’s fishing event at Spearfish Park, near Dallesport, Washington, on June 9 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Visitors learn basic fishing skills, such as properly baiting and tying a hook, identifying fish species, casting and, most importantly, how to be safe around water. Corps Park Rangers, volunteers and partners from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Klickitat Chapter of Trout Unlimited are coming together to provide outdoor activities for children with beginner fishing experience.

This event is held in conjunction with Washington States Free Fishing weekend, therefore a fishing license is not required. All other sport fishing rules apply, including size and catch limits. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own poles, bait and tackle, as only a limited supply will be available. Please dress for the weather and bring bottled water (potable water is not available).

The Spearfish boat ramp will be closed on June 9, so anglers should use the ramp to access the water. Water access at Spearfish does not meet ADA requirements.

Spearfish Park is located off U.S. Highway 197 near Dallesport. From the highway, turn east on Dock Road and continue approximately one mile to the park on the left. Recreational activities at the lake include hiking, geocaching, fishing, swimming and wildlife viewing.

For more information about Corps recreation areas and activities on the Columbia River, please contact The Dalles Lock and Dam ranger office at 541-506-7857 or visit
