Plenty of huge trophy trout from Desert Springs Trout Farm will be stocked in these beautiful High Sierra ponds with Mammoth Mountain forming a picturesque backdrop. This popular event is FREE for kids 14 and under. Rods and reels are provided, or you can bring your own. Come later, receive more individual attention from our guides, and have lunch.

Fisheries staff from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (DFW) will be available to lend a hand and teach children a little about California’s trout fisheries. Every child will receive their own California Fishing Passport and fish identification book. Catch a fish and get special passport stamps in their book. A beautiful trout aquarium, provided by Hot Creek Hatchery, will be on display and loaded with enormous trout. Kids will receive information on the life of a hatchery trout along with a special coloring book and a junior fishing license.
