Father’s Day Fish Derby a family affair in Barriere

North Thompson Fish and Game Club hold 10th Annual Father’s Day Fish Derby

The 10th Annual Father’s Day Fishing Derby hosted by the North Thompson Fish and Game Club took place on Sunday, June 16, under mostly clear skies and with plenty of enthusiastic participants. Weigh-in took place at the Bandshell in Barriere’s Fadear Park where anglers, family, and friends gathered to visit and wait for the results.

NTF&G member and volunteer, Kathy Campbell, reported a total of 101 fish were brought in for weighing. She noted the angler’s favorite lake of the day was Lynn Lake, with Schilling, Deer, Forrest, Dunn, Tawell, Adams, South Barriere and Gorman all used by other anglers.

The youngest fisherman was Abraham Bourassa who also pulled the hidden weight winning ticket, and all of the youngsters who attended got to choose a prize from a free draw.

“We are already looking forward to seeing everyone next year,” said Campbell, “And hopefully we will see even more participants.”
