“Fishing is free for all participants under the age of 14,” said Katy Gray, Umatilla National Forest Environmental Education Coordinator. Children participating in this event must be accompanied by an adult. There will be fishing poles available for those who do not have one and volunteers will be on site to provide instruction to first-time anglers.
Activities include a casting contest with prizes for each age group and awards for the biggest fish caught during official derby hours. “We’ll also have free hot dogs and pop for all kids who register and participate,” said Gray.
Tri-State Steelheaders will also be conducting a fishing pole drive and collecting fishing poles in any condition. Donated poles are refurbished and will be given away to children at future events in hopes of encouraging a life-long love of fishing!
Jubilee Lake is located 12 miles northeast of Tollgate on Forest Road 64. From Highway 11 at Weston, OR, take State Highway 204 to Tollgate and turn left on Forest Road 64.
