The Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests and several partner groups will be celebrating Free Fishing Day on Saturday, June 8 at locations near Grangeville, Elk City, and Lowell. Idaho’s Free Fishing Day is an annual event held the second Saturday every June. All anglers, residents and nonresidents, can celebrate the day by fishing Idaho’s waters without a license. An adult must accompany young participants. Some locations have fishing gear that you can borrow, but you are encouraged to bring a fishing pole and your own tackle and prepare for a fun–filled day of fishing!

Near Grangeville, Free Fishing Day activities will be held at Wilkins’ Pond, located on Lake Road off of U.S. Highway 95 approximately 5.5 miles south of Grangeville. The Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests, Grangeville Lions Club, Idaho Department of Fish and Game, and the Bureau of Land Management’s Cottonwood office will be hosting the 31st annual Free Fishing Day event. Events will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. (PDT). There will be a casting contest, fish art activity, a raffle drawing for prizes, and awards for the biggest and smallest fish caught! The Grangeville Lions Club will provide hot dogs and drinks free for participants.
