Every fisherman remembers catching their first fish.

The details may get foggy over the years, but that life-changing experience is not soon forgotten. We are pleased to announce that the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre is offering a fishing occasion for your children 15 years and under through a Learn to Fish Program taking place July 23 at the centre (25 km east of Enderby at 2550 Mabel Lake Rd).

Local angling experts will be volunteering their time to provide a first-hand fishing experience and an opportunity for instruction on casting techniques, fish handling practices, fish identification, fly tying and more. This unique chance to learn the ins and outs of successful fishing is something you don’t want to miss if you are just learning to fish or have never had the chance to try.

If you have your own gear, please bring it with you or if you aren’t sure what kind of gear you will need to start your fishing career, rods will be available to use and advice on what to purchase will be offered. This fun-filled day will also include information on aquatic invasive species and an interactive aquatic bug display, which will provide an opportunity to learn how to recognize what our local fish are feeding on.

The Enderby Lions Club will be barbecuing up a storm and serving food by donation. The event is free and will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Great prizes will be awarded throughout the day, so come early for more chances to win! If you have any questions about this event, please contact the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre at 250-838-0004.
