Youth Fishing Day
A portion of the Nick Dudiak Fishing Lagoon on the Homer Spit, will open for fishing only to anglers age 15 and younger on Saturday, June 7, from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.
The youth-only sport fishing area will be posted, and the remainder of the lagoon will be open for fishing to anglers of all ages. All other sport fishing regulations remain in effect.
Alaska Department of Fish and Game staff will be present at the Fishing Hole from 3-5 p.m. They will be available to help young anglers gear up and fish for king salmon returning to the lagoon. Fishing rods will be available for kids to check out and use.
Other activities will include tying egg loops and fishing knots, and learning the best way for releasing fish. Free loaner spinning rods are also available to all anglers for up to a week through the Homer Fishing Rod Lender Program. Fishing rods can be checked out at the Alaska Islands and Ocean Visitor Center or the Homer ADF&G Office.
