Kids Fishing Day at Rotary Park

Event date: 5/26/2018 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM Export event

On Saturday, May 26 the Whitecourt Fish & Game Association will be hosting Kids Fishing Day.

The event will be held at the the pond in Rotary Park from 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.  Fishing equipment will be available or you can bring your own. Adults will be present to assist those who need it. The main purpose of the event is to introduce our youth to a very enjoyable sport, which can be experienced right in Whitecourt’s backyard. Anglers will learn different techniques for catching trout, how to clean their catch and the correct way to catch and release fish. You need not register to attend the event and there are no costs to participate.

There are some special rules that apply to the Rotary Pond. Adults (16 years old or older) may fish there, but must be accompanied by a person under 16 years old.

All Provincial Sportfishing Regulations apply, including the requirement to have a Sportfishing Licence if you are 16 years of age or older.

We hope you will come out and experience what promises to be a very enjoyable day. If you have any questions about the event please contact Greg Gilbertson of at 780-778-6791.
