Kids Fishing Day

Event date: 6/2/2019 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM Export event

On Sunday, June 2, 2019 the Whitecourt Fish & Game Association will host Kids Fishing Day.  The event will be held at the Whitecourt 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 an 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 at Rotary Park Pond.  Adults (16 years old or older) may fish there, but must be accompanied by a person under 16 years old.  The Provincial Sportsfishing Regulations apply, including the requirement to have a Sportfishing Licence if you are 16 years of age or older.

Questions can be directed to Greg Gilbertson at 780-778-6791.
