(NEWPORT, Ore.) - Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is hosting a Family Fishing Event Saturday, March 28 at Devils Lake in Lincoln City.

The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Regatta Park. ODFW will stock the lake with 6,500 rainbow trout, including 2,000 fish that will be released in a large net pen reserved for youths.

ODFW staff and volunteers will be present to hand out equipment, and be available to teach youngsters how to bait, cast, and "reel in" their catch.

Adults can get tips on basic rigging, fish identification and casting.

This is the first of dozens of family fishing events that will be held throughout the state this year. These events are intended to help families to learn how to fish together and discover just how much fun it can be.

“This will be our second annual event at Devil’s Lake,” said Christine Clapp, fish biologist in Newport.

“It’s still a relatively small event compared to some others, so it’s a great opportunity to get your kids out fishing without the lines that form at some of our other events.”

Licenses are required for anyone over the age of 13, and are not available at the events. If you need a fishing license you may purchase one online or at one of ODFW’s license outlets. Juvenile licenses cost $9 each.

To purchase a license on-line, visit ODFW’s website at: http://www.dfw.state.or.us/online_license_sales/index.asp
