May kicks off the sixth annual Go Fish program. Where youngsters under the age of 16 can fish at local parks every weekend for the month of May from 10 am. until 3pm. Kids can fish for rainbow trout without a fishing licence and are allowed to keep one fish from each day. The ponds will be stocked with the trout reared locally at the Summerland Trout Hatchery. Equipment will be provided by the Regional Parks but supplies are limited so please bring your own equipment if you can.
The grand opening activities will be held on Saturday May 5th at the Hall Road Pond in Mission Creek Regional Park and on Sunday May 6th at Shannon Lake Regional Park where festivities will include a barbecue and other refreshments.
Expert fishermen will be on hand for both Saturday and Sunday. Brings the kids and let them try their hand at fishing. I know my wife loves fishing....but she never catches anything!
