UPDATE: The well-being of our staff, anglers and Kids Can Catch participants is our top priority. As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation, please understand our regularly scheduled events may change.

We are happy to hear about your fishing adventures and are even happier when you continue to follow all public health guidelines. Please keep fishing friendly and safe for everyone to enjoy.
What is Kids Can Catch?
Each year, multiple Kids Can Catch events are held across the province. Volunteers are on-hand to help teach new anglers the proper ways to bait a hook, where to drop a line, and what to do once a fish has been caught.
