Take the family fishing at Green Island!
Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife staff and volunteers will provide equipment, and teach new anglers how to rig their line, cast a rod, land a fish and identify their catch. Cleaning stations will be set up so you can bring home your catch! This is a great opportunity for families to learn how to fish together and spend time in the outdoors!
Oregon fishing licenses are required for anyone 12 or older, and they are not sold at the event.
Because this property is a privately-owned space in active conservation, there are a few things to know before you visit:
- No pets, please. They may disturb wildlife.
- There will be a port-a-potty available but no other facilities.
- Bring a water supply to stay refreshed.
- The neighbors very much appreciate you driving slow on your way in. Please stay under 5 MPH past the houses on Green Island Rd.
