Pine Grove Pond, a family fishing pond and access area, will open to the general public for the season on Saturday, April 12. According to FWP Fisheries Manager Mark Deleray, the pond and access, located near Rose Crossing on the outskirts of Kalispell, hosts many thousands of angler days over the spring and summer and is a favorite spot for Hooked on Fishing classes.
“This continues to be a great gift to anglers in the Flathead and beyond, and we are thankful Robin Street and his family for donating such a wonderful place for family fishing,” says Deleray.
Anglers 14 years of age and younger may keep 1 trout daily. For anglers 15 and older, it is catch-and-release for trout. All Montana fishing license requirements apply to anglers fishing Pine Grove Pond.
The access is in good shape and good numbers of trout have been stocked in the pond. Many trout over-winter in the pond as well.
