PORTLAND, Ore. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers invites the public to a family fishing event at Spearfish Park, near Dallesport, Washington, on June 6 from 9 a.m. to noon.   The event coincides with the state of Washington’s free fishing weekend and national Get Outdoors Day.

Corps park rangers, volunteers and partners from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Klickitat Chapter of Trout Unlimited and the national Get Outdoors Foundation will provide a variety of outdoor activities for families. Visitors can learn basic fishing skills, such as properly baiting and tying a hook, identifying species of fish, casting and cleaning your catch, and most importantly, how to be safe around the water.

This event is intended for children and families with beginning levels of fishing experience.  Visitors are encouraged to bring their poles, bait and tackle; only a limited supply will be available for use. Please dress for the weather and bring bottled water, as potable water is not available on-site.  

The Spearfish Park ramp will be closed to boats during the event, because anglers will use the boat ramp to access the water.  Water access at the park does not meet ADA requirements.

Spearfish Park is located approximately one mile off U.S. Highway 197 near Dallesport, Washington.  From Highway 197, turn east on Dock Road and the park will be on the left.  Activities enjoyed 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 541-506-7819 or visit
