Kids Can Catch Program

Kids Can Catch is a province-wide program in which ACA partners with community and corporate partners to create free family fishing events at lakes and ponds. We developed Kids Can Catch as a way to invite Albertans to fish at stocked and natural waterbodies and to hook new and young anglers on fishing, fish conservation, and responsible angling. In 2021, Kids Can Catch events across Alberta welcomed over 850 adults and children and 35 organizations, partners, and sponsors. During this year, COVID-19 restrictions prevented many events from happening but that allowed those that hosted events to become creative with ways to bring audiences in safely.
