Kid's Fishing Ponds

Fishing Season is underway once again.  If you're looking for two great places to take your kids or Grand kids fishing, the Kid's Fishing Ponds at the Sawtooth Hatchery and Squaw Creek are perfect.

Both ponds were stocked prior to the Memorial Day Holiday and will continue to be stocked throughout the summer.  Tours of the Sawtooth Fish Hatchery began May 25 and will continue each day at 1:30 pm until Labor Day weekend.

Regular trout stocking of The Upper Salmon River and Sawtooth lakes is expected to begin in early June.  A special Kid's Free Fishing Day event will be held June 8 at the Sawtooth Hatchery Kid's Fishing Pond.  In addition to free poles and bait, prizes and snacks will be available for all participants.  For more information, contact Hatchery Staff at 208-774-3684.
The Sawtooth Hatchery Kid's Fishing Pond is a truly delightful, fully-accessible spot.
IDFG has gone all out to make the Hatchery Kid's Fishing Pond a fun place.
Fishing tackle is always available.
IDFG even provides worms.
The red "X" marks the spot.
The Hatchery is located at "A" and Stanley is at "B".
The Hatchery Kid's Fishing Pond is right in the middle of the IDFG facility ("X").
Here's a panorama view of The Squaw Creek Kid's Fishing Pond.  It's in a more rural setting but the adjacent Thompson Creek Mine access road can be very busy at times.  It's a short walk from the road to the pond.
The Squaw Creek Kid's Fishing Pond is easy to find, if you know where to look.  On this graphic, it's marked by the red "X."  Take the Thompson Creek Mine bridge. ("A")  Do not take the May Family ranch bridge. The Squaw Creek public access area to The Salmon River is right of the "B."  Old Sawmill Station is at "C" and "D" marks the Ice Corner bridge.
