Fishing Fun For All Ages
The Annual Family Fishing Derby is
held annually at the Rotary Pond in conjunction with the Provincial Family
Fishing Weekend in June.
The derby is cosponsored by Ducks Unlimited and is an entertaining and educational day for the children and adults alike. The children learn about wetland game birds, by watching two short videos presented by members of Ducks Unlimited, and a question and answer period that follows.
The children and adults then build bird houses, the bird houses are provided by Ducks Unlimited. The children are offered the chance to take home their finished project for a small donation to DU, any houses not taken home by the children are placed on various lakes.
The children then enjoy a day of fishing for the feisty little rainbow trout the pond is stocked with. The fishermen are treated to lunch, ice-cream and drinks, and given a membership to Greenwings and a number of other giveaways.
Thanks to the sponsorship of Ducks Unlimited and other local sponsors and the dedication of Dennis Whitbread and his team, the derby offers approximately $500.00 in prizes to be won by the "children"...every child is a winner.
Children bring your parents, grandparents, or other adult and help them to remember what it was like to be a child and have a good time fishing.
