Free Kids Fishing Day at Johnson Lake in 2011 provided a great learning experience for area youngsters.

Johnson Lake Resort is hosting it’s 6th Annual Free Kids Fishing Day on June 23 and 24. Children ages five to 15 will learn how to fish, and it is expected they will have a whole lot of fun doing it.

Some of the topics that will be covered will include: fish identification and habitat, learning to tie knots, casting and retrieving, and proper fish handling.  There will also be a tour to view spawning rainbow trout, as well as other crafts and activities.  All fishing gear will be supplied, as will a barbecue lunch.

Those attending should bring lifejackets for the youth, as well as cool and wet weather gear, just in case it rains.

Organizers say that even with the choice of either the Saturday or Sunday session, space is limited, so it will be a good idea to register early for this great family event by calling 250-672-1008, or sending an email to info@johnsonlakeresort.com.

This annual event is sponsored in 2012 by Johnson Lake Resort, AG Foods, the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC, the Family Fishing Society of BC, and Turkey’s Party Makers.

 

See you there!
