Fishing as a recreational pastime

Little kids and “big kids” are invited to spend time on Father’s Day at the Courtenay and District Fish and Game Protective Association.

Little kids and “big kids” are invited to spend time on Father’s Day weekend, June 15 and 16 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., fishing for trout out at the Courtenay and District Fish and Game Protective Association.

The pond is stocked and no license is required.

Fish and Game members will supply bait, untangle gear and clean fish and any other assistance necessary to ensure you have a great time. Some loaner rods will be available for those who have no fishing gear or new to the sport.

The BC Family Fishing weekend is an annual event designed to introduce fishing as a recreational pastime, develop new anglers and have fun with friends and family.

The Province of BC supports the event by offering the three-day free freshwater licence opportunity. The Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC provides the healthy trout for visitors catching pleasure.

Courtenay Thrifty Foods adds pleasure to the family event by providing a complimentary snack and beverages.
