2017 Polson Park Pond Kids Free Fishing Weeked has finished for the year. Saturday saw about 421 young fishers come down to the pond to try their luck catching some of the 1,000 rainbow trout provided by the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC. On Sunday about 384 young fishers showed up to catch the rest of the rainbows. For some of these young fishers, this was there first time fishing and for many this was the first time they caught a fish. As it is with fishing, not everyone took home a fish. We look forward to next year, hope to see you there.
Fish Arrive – Wednesday, 26 April 2017, usually around noon. Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC will deliver approximatly 1,000 Rainbow Trout.
The Kalamalka Flyfishers Society along with the Shuswap Fly Fishers, Enderby Fish and Game Club, with fish provided by the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC present a day for kids to learn how to fish hosted by the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre.
The day is about more than catching fish, although that does happen. Kids are encouraged to attend a variety of stations: fly tying, fly casting, fishing pond, entomology (insects), and others and have their pass book stamped. They can then enter their pass book to win a number of prizes.
Volunteers are on hand to explain the proper use of fishing tackle and assist the kids as needed.
