North Thompson Fish & Game plan Father’s Day Fishing Derby

Everyone is welcome to celebrate Fathers Day on Sunday, June 15, by heading out into the great outdoors to fish

Members of the North Thompson Fish and Game Club Society hold regular monthly meetings on the fourth Monday of the month at the North Thompson Volunteer Centre

The main topic up for discussion at the regular monthly meeting of the North Thompson Fish And Game Club Society in May was the upcoming Father’s Day Fishing Derby. This is an annual event that draws not only fathers and their families, but fishing enthusiasts of all ages. Club president Ben Thiessen, says this is a “free fishing day, meaning anyone can fish without a license, and Father’s Day Fishing Derby anglers will be fishing in lakes that are situated within a 50 km radius  from the Barriere Post Office”.

There is a $5 fee per entry, but children under 16 years of age do not have to pay the fee.

Thiessen says the weigh-in for the Derby will take place at 4:00 p.m. at the Barriere Bandshell. There will be numerous prizes and awards.

Everyone is welcome to celebrate Fathers Day on Sunday, June 15, by heading out into the great outdoors to fish, maybe have a picnic as well, and enjoy a great family fun day courtesy of the North Thompson Fish and Game Club.
