Free fishing day

Plan ahead to enjoy free fishing day June 11. And if you don't have a rod and reel, it's not an excuse. At special locations around southwest Idaho, tackle will be available for use and fishing experts will be on hand to help novice anglers. All these locations will be stocked with hatchery rainbow trout prior to the special day. Be sure to take the kids.
