Catch the free fishing clinic June 11 at Spearfish Park, Wa

Published May 31, 2016

In conjunction with the State of Washington’s free fishing weekend and National Get Outdoors Day, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers invites the public to a family fishing event at Spearfish Park, near Dallesport, Washington, on June 11 from 9 a.m. to noon.

 

Visitors can 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 these outdoor activities for children and families with beginner levels of fishing experience.

 

While 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 this day so anglers can use the ramp to access the water. Water access at Spearfish does not meet ADA requirements. The 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. 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 www.nwp.usace.army.mil/recreation.
