Ada County Fishin' with the Commission Saturday

The Board of Ada County Commissioners invites the public to join them for the Second Annual Fishin' with the Commission on Saturday, June 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Settlers Pond in Meridian.

Ada County and Idaho Fish and Game have teamed up to provide this fun and educational opportunity for the whole family. The event offers citizens a chance to come out and fish free for a day, with all fishing gear and expert assistance provided through Fish and Game's "Take Me Fishing" trailer. Those who register on-site will not need a fishing license to participate.

"Last year we had around 100 people attend the first Fishin' with the Commission event," said Ada County Commission Chairman Dave Case in a press release. "It really turned out to be a fantastic event — some of the parents with small children said it was the first time their kids had caught a fish, so that really puts a smile on your face."
