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 2019/20, Kids Can Catch events across Alberta welcomed 4,387 adults and children and 100 organizations, partners, and sponsors. The flagship Wabamun Lake Kids Can Catch was an outstanding success with over 1,000 participants.
