Learn to fish evening at Edith Lake

OUTDOORS — There is still time to register for a learn-to-fish evening at Edith Lake.

Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. is offering its second night of fishing education on Wednesday from 6-8 p.m. at the lake, located in Knutsford, 17 km south of Kamloops. It’s one of many lessons offered by the society provincewide to encourage wider interest in angling.

The program is sponsored by the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation and is intended for youth between the ages of 5 and 15. They cover the basics with an opportunity for some hands-on experience at the lake, including fish identification, conservation, hatchery roles, proper fish handling, regulations, ethics, tackle, rod rigging and casting.

There is a suggested donation of $5 per participant. The event will be held rain or shine.

They ask that participants arrive early, in time for the introductory part of the program to enable the hands-on portion, and reserve the right to deny entry to anyone arriving after the program starts.
