The annual Kids Fishing Day in Evanston will be held Saturday, June 9th. A substantial number of pan-sized trout will be planted in the Evanston Ice Ponds for the event. All fishing equipment and bait will be provided for the youngsters. Kids 13 years old and younger do not need a fishing license. 14 year-olds and older will need a Wyoming Fishing license.

Hot dogs, chips and a soda will be provided for lunch. All participants can have their fish cleaned and even cooked.

Registration (free) is from 7:45 am to noon. Fishing will be from 8 am till 1 pm. Everyone is welcome. We get a good number of kids from Utah's Summit and Rich counties.

Last year a Rainbow over 9 lbs was caught!!!

Wow. They sure do things differently up there.
Thanks and sorry about that. It's 14 year-olds, not 4-year olds. My "1" key is on the frits!

I changed it.

What a great event. Over 450 kids registered, and many more came and fished without registering. The thing is put on by the Upper Bear River Trout Unlimited, Cowboy Bass, Sportsman for Fish and Wildlife (Southwest Wyoming Chapter), the Wyoming Game and Fish and too many other donors to mention.

Every participant got a prize: rods and reels, tackle boxes full of goodies, even nets.


Free Bait (it's in the Pepsi cups)


Free soda pop


Free Food



The local Cowboy Bass Club weighed and cleaned about 500 fish.


Elbow-to-elbow, but no one complained




Nice Bear River Cutthroat planters:






Girls too



We start 'em young over here:

Looks like a lot of fun. Good job for helping out (those free rod/reel combos look familiar...).

That last picture is priceless. If you know that guy, you should give him a copy.
