Until further notice, the kids fishing day at Mt Shasta Hatchery has been relocated to other waters in CDFW's Northern Region. For 2017 Kids Fishing Day information, please dial (530) 225-2368.
We aim to bring the Kids Fishing Day back to Mt Shasta Hatchery by summer of 2018 but first need to attend to hatchery facility maintenance. Thank you.
Historically, Mount Shasta Hatchery holds 3 kid's fishing days, one each in June, July and August. Each angler under the age of 15 can keep two fish caught from our back ponds. No equipment needed, poles, tackle and bait provided.
A young angler helps hold his catch of the day, a nearly 22 pound brown trout.
Volunteer helps net a nice catch
Nearly 1,000 visitors participate each kid’s fishing day
These two ponds are stocked with nearly 10,000 pounds of fish ranging from a half pound, to the 20lb brown trophy at the top of the page
