Kids from ages five to 15 will have the opportunity to try their hand at fishing at Charlie Lake this weekend when the Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C.’s Learn to Fish Program comes to town.

Learn to Fish is a province-wide initiative, created to provide youth the opportunity to experience fresh water fishing, Freshwater Fisheries said in a statement.

The program will run Saturday, July 20 at Charlie Lake, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. There will be B.C. Parks Day celebrations from 1 to 3 p.m.

The program offers free tackle, rods and lessons to those who participate.

“Our sponsor partner, the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation, was instrumental in expanding the programs to the Peace region, and BC Parks has been a key partner in helping us deliver accessible fishing programs all across the province,” says Jessica Yarwood, Outreach Coordinator, Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC.

“There is world class fishing in the area and we are looking forward to introducing more people to the sport and the fishing opportunities in their own backyard.”

The Learn to Fish even is hosted on a drop-in basis.
