KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Young anglers in Chiloquin will have a new fishing hole thanks to a cooperative effort between the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and landowner Peachy Thomas.
Thomas will be opening Peachy Pond to fishing for young anglers (age 17 and younger), senior anglers (age 65 and over) and anglers with an Oregon Disabilities Fishing Permit beginning April 23.
According to Bill Tinniswood, ODFW fish biologist in Klamath Falls, ODFW will be stocking the pond with legal-sized rainbow trout in anticipation of the opener.
The ponds will be stocked regularly through the Fourth of July, Tinniswood added. Check the ODFW website for a complete stocking schedule. ODFW staff will be at Peachy Ponds on April 23 to help introduce anglers to this new fishing opportunity.
The pond is located off Modoc Point Road near Chiloquin. From Modoc Point Road turn east on Rivers Drive at the Williamson River Store.
