Three Learn To Fish events this month

Discover the joys of fishing June 9, June 14 and June 23 in Chemainus and Ladysmith.

June is a great time to get out fishing, and for three days this month, it will be easier than ever.

The Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC is hosting Learn To Fish events Monday, June 9 and Monday, June 23 from 6-8 p.m. at Fuller Lake Park in Chemainus.

The days are geared toward children and youth aged five to 15, with an accompanying adult, and all equipment is provided.

No registration is required, and admission is by donation.

For more information, e-mail or call 250-886-1488.

In Ladysmith, the Ladysmith Sportsmen’s Club is hosting B.C.’s Family Fishing Day Saturday, June 14 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Bush Creek Hatchery.

This is the perfect time to learn to fish or rediscover fishing because everyone can fish without a license for the day.

The event is free, but participants are asked to bring a donation to the Ladysmith Food Bank when they get to the hatchery.

For more information, call Dave Judson at 250-245-3690.
