Pocatello Wellness Pond - A New Fishing Hole/Recreational Area Opening September 2015

Pocatello will receive a new urban fishing water this coming fall with the opening of the Portneuf Wellness Complex.  The 7-acre pond will be stocked with fish and ready for anglers when the park opens to the public.

 

Last week, our staff were busy placing docks and working on other access improvements.

To see more of this exciting project, go to Facebook and search "Portneuf Wellness Complex."  This will be a jewel for all Southeastern Idaho.
