Join Lesser Slave Watershed Council at its Ice Fishing Festival in the Hamlet of Joussard. First head to Joussard Community Hall to pick up a loaner ice fishing rod. Out on the lake you will find pre-drilled holes, fishing mentors, ice shacks, skating, hot chocolate, hotdogs, and more! Need to warm up? Head back to the hall for crafts and games with volunteers from Tolko Industries and the High Prairie and District Children's Resource Council. 

Important info:

  • Lesser Slave Lake Kids Can Catch takes place on Alberta’s Family Fishing Weekend, so no fishing licences are required.
  • Hot chocolate and roasting marshmallows are on-hand to warm you up, while supplies last.
