“It’s a great way to teach kids to fish,” said avid angler Steve Gobel of Twin Falls. Gobel is a proponent of restocking lakes and streams with fish.

According to its website, the agency stocks nearly 31,000 catchable size rainbow trout throughout July, with Lake Cleveland having the largest stock at 5,000 trout.

The Take Me Fishing trailer will be at Lake Cleveland on Saturday, July 30, making it the perfect place to take part in the Take Me Fishing event.

Fishing stocked rainbow trout, especially in community ponds, is a great way to introduce new anglers to the sport using simple (and relatively economical) setups like worm/marshmallow combos or bait commercial like Power Bait or Crave, either near the bottom or under a bobber,” Fish and Game states in its storage schedule.

All scheduled fishing events will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
