grand opening scheduled for kuna community pond
Dedication ceremonies for Sego Prairie Pond, the Treasure Valley's newest community fishing pond, will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 13. The city of Kuna will host a grand opening celebration and fishing activities at the new pond.

To reach Sego Prairie Pond, travel south on State Highway 69 also knownas the Kuna-Meridian Road, then west on Deer Flat Road to 10 Mile Road. Turn south on 10 Mile Road and travel less than a half mile, turning west onto West Sego Prairie Street. Sego Prairie Pond is at the end of this road, about a half mile from the turnoff.

Anglers of all ages are invited to try their luck and no fishing license will be required during the special event. Fish and Game staff will have the "Take Me Fishing" trailer on site with loaner rods available for use.

The community pond project was initiated last year by the city of Kuna.

"For years now, local kids have had no place to bobber fish in the Kuna community," Fish and Game fishery manager Jeff Dillon said. "We're excited to see the city of Kuna taking up the cause and developing Sego Prairie Pond as a fun, safe place for young anglers."

Fish and Game will stock Sego Prairie Pond with trout in advance of the grand opening, and trout stocking will continue every few weeks this spring and fall.
