Mill Pond to become senior adult fishing hole for a day

Senior adults, age 55 and older, are invited to fish in Auburn’s Mill Pond on Oravetz Road, across from Auburn Riverside High School. Senior Fishing Day will be held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

The pond is normally designated for juvenile fishing only, however the Auburn Parks, Arts & Recreation Department has arranged for this special opportunity.

Thanks to the Green River Steelhead Trout Club and Auburn Sports and Marine, the pond has been stocked, and tackle and bait will be provided for those who need it.

No licenses are necessary, as the event is held on Washington’s free fishing weekend. A plaque will be awarded to the angler who catches the largest fish.
