Kids Free Fishing Day attracts more than 500 children to Sparks Marina

The Nevada Department of Wildlife stocked Sparks Marina with about 7,000 rainbow and brown trout earlier in June, which led to some happy young fishermen for Kids Free Fishing Day on June 10.

There were about 550 children at the free event, for which poles were provided, along with ice cream and face painting.

The event was held in conjunction with Free Fishing Day in Nevada and was one of several such events held around the state.

Unfortunately, there are no more scheduled free fishing events broken for this year.

This week’s fishing report, as provided by various sources

The Sparks Marina was stocked with about 7,000 rainbow and brown trout earlier in June, for Kids Free Fishing Day on June 10.

LAKE DAVIS: The lake is at about half capacity. The boat docks are not in the water at Honker Cove. Anglers are launching their boats at Camp 5 and using rainbow runners, Dick Nites or needlefish for rainbow trout. Anglers should troll either west to east on the north side of the island, or south to Eagle Point and back to Camp 5 in 20 feet of water. Browns and rainbows are up to 20 inches. Shore anglers fishing Mallard Cove and Honker Cove are doing better with orange Powerbait than nightcrawlers. J&J’s Grizzly Store and Camping Resort, 530-832-0270.
