Fort Saskatchewan Kids Can Catch

This event draws a crowd every year regardless of the weather. Thank you to all 540 people who came out before we shut it down two hours early due to thunderstorms.

A very special thank you to our presenting sponsors Dow and Cabela’s Canada Outdoor Fund, and to all the volunteers from the many organizations who came out. Thank you:

  • Dow volunteers for welcoming anglers at the registration tent, hosting a tasty BBQ, and prepping fishing rods for families to borrow.
  • Cabela’s Edmonton north store for rigging fishing rods in advance, handing out loaner fishing rods, and mentoring anglers around the pond.
  • Walleye Master for worms, always a hit with kids.
  • Backroad Mapbooks for the string packs—the kids loved ‘em.
  • Alberta Environment and Parks for bringing the message of Clean Drain Dry to help prevent the spread of invasive species and whirling disease.
  • Fish and Wildlife officers for meeting with anglers around the pond.
  • Edmonton Trout Fishing Club for mentoring anglers on the fantastic new dock.
  • Northern Light Fly Fishers for sharing flies and fishing tips.
  • Superfly for the fly fishing demos and instruction.
  • Alberta Lifesaving Society for bringing the message of safety around water.
  • Fort Lions Club for the new dock and being the event’s parking marshals.
  • Fort Saskatchewan Naturalists for introducing families to what lives in and around the pond.
  • River Valley Alliance and City of Fort Saskatchewan for celebrating River Day at Kids Can Catch.
  • Cabela’s Canada Outdoor Fund for supporting getting families out fishing.
