Fish­ing for kids this week­end

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Mem­bers of the Lake Mas­saw­ippi Con­ser­va­tion Club will be ini­ti­at­ing the young and old alike, this com­ing week­end, to the peace­ful pas­time of fish­ing. On June 4th they will be at the wharf in Ayer’s Cliff be­gin­ning at 9:00 am. A net will be in­stalled and the club will re­lease Brown Trout into the net­ted area so young­sters can eas­ily catch a ‘big’ one. All the fish­ing equip­ment will be pro­vided and mem­bers of the club will be there to teach the kids how to fish safely. Chil­dren will also re­ceive a free fish­ing per­mit which will be good un­til they reach eighteen years of age.

There will be free hot­dogs and drinks and peo­ple will also have the chance to join the Lake Mas­saw­ippi Con­ser­va­tion Club or re­new their mem­ber­ship. On June 5th, at the wharf in North Hat­ley, the same ac­tiv­i­ties will take place.

Dur­ing the an­nual Fete de la Peche, which takes place all over Que­bec from June 3rd to June 5th, peo­ple tak­ing part in the events to pro­mote the sport of fish­ing don’t need to have fish­ing per­mits but they must re­spect quo­tas.
