100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Fish On! Kids Fishing Day in Bend May 21

Posted By on Sat, May 14, 2016 at 10:32 AM

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is sponsoring a series of statewide free fishing events for kids and Bend's Pine Nursery Pond will host one of those events May 21.  Anglers 11 and under can fish for free.  Those 12-17 will need a youth license to participate.  Licenses will not be sold at the event.

ODFW will loan out fishing rods, reels, tackle, and some bait on a first-come, first-serve basis between 9 am and 1 pm.  Pine Nursery Pond will be stocked with legal-and trophy sized rainbow trout prior to the event.  ODFW will also be on hand to assist youngsters with tips and ideas.  

Pine Nursery Pond is located in northeast Bend between Purcell, Deschutes Market and Yeoman Road.  From Hwy 97, take the Empire Blvd exit, head east on Empire Blvd 1.5 miles, turn left on Purcell, turn right on Yeoman, then take the first right that leads into the park.  A parking lot on the left leads to the pond.

For further information, contact Jenn Luke at ODFW's Bend office at 541-388-6366.
