BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Family fishing days have returned to the North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s Outdoor Wildlife Learning Site.

The catch-and-release fishery in Bismarck is stocked with trout, bluegill, largemouth bass and other species.

Family fishing days are Wednesdays and Saturdays through August. Fishing equipment can be checked out at the OWLS Pond next to the Game and Fish office from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fishing rods, basic tackle and bait are available for use free of charge.

Trained volunteers or Game and Fish staff are available to answer questions and check out equipment. Children who aren’t old enough to get to the pond on their own should be accompanied by an adult.

The OWLS pond is open to fishing year-round during daylight hours. Larger groups are encouraged to make arrangements.
