Sixteen hundred people learned just how much fun ice fishing can be at last year’s Wabamun Lake Kids Can Catch. On February 17, we hope you will come out to give it a try. With no fishing licences required, there’s never a better opportunity to check it out.
Date: February 17, 2018
Time: 10am – 3pm
Place: Wabamun Lake, at the end of 50th Street in the Village of Wabamun
Step 1: Register at albertakidscancatch.com. Registration opens February 1.
Step 2: Read the FAQs at albertakidscancatch.com to prepare for a day on the ice.
Step 3: Park at Waterfront Park located at the end of 50th Street in the Village of Wabamun. Load up your toboggan with folding chairs and snacks and walk to the event site on the ice.
Step 4: Sign in at the TransAlta Kids Can Catch registration tent.
Step 5: Borrow an ice fishing rod from the Cabela’s tent on the ice (or bring your own rod if you have one).
