Kids in Whitecourt can try out fishing this weekend, with the help of some experts.
The Whitecourt Fish and Game Association will be hosting Kids Fishing Day on Sunday, June 2nd at Rotary Pond.
The free event will run from 10 am to 2 pm and is open to kids under the age of 16.
Greg Gilbertson with the Whitecourt Fish and Game Association says the event is a good introduction to the sport.
Anglers will learn how to catch fish using different techniques, how to clean their catch and the correct way to catch and release fish.
Some equipment will be available or participants can bring their own. No registration is required and those under 16 do not need a fishing licence.
