    Event Summary

    Columbia Falls is home to a new family fishing pond, and the community is invited to celebrate the grand opening and dedication at River’s Edge Park.

    The event is Tuesday, June 18, 2019 from 4-7 p.m. Kids fishing gear will be provided on a limited basis during the event, which coincides with National Go Fishing Day. Food will be served during the celebration and youth raffle prizes will be awarded.

    The new pond was developed thanks to a community-wide collaboration focused on providing family fishing opportunities at the city park.

    Anglers are asked to wait until the grand opening on June 18 before fishing at the site.

    Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) has committed to stocking the pond with westslope cutthroat trout, the state fish. Following the dedication, all anglers will be welcome to fish at the pond and fishing license requirements will apply. Anglers 15 and older are required to catch and release all trout, while anglers 14 and younger can keep one trout per day.
