ARRIVE: Friday, February 1  between 12:00 noon  - 10:00 pm

DEPART: Sunday, February 3   2:00 pm

FISHING: Perch, Pike and Crappie (access to the crappie lake will depend on how much snow is on the ice as it is a fair walk to that location)   

ALCOHOL: Responsible use of alcohol is allowed in the cabins and the main pavilion ONLY. For your own safety and the enjoyment of others, we ask that participants do not overindulge.

***Elbow Lake is a nature reserve so live bait and barbed hooks are not allowed. Fishing is catch and release only on Elbow but we can keep fish from Spectacle Lake and another back lake. There will be a fair amount of walking on the ice to get to Spectacle Lake. The lake we fish for perch/pike is a short drive away and an easy walk out on the ice. ***

IMPORTANT: We will be fishing on the open ice. You are welcome to bring and use a pop up hut if you choose but will not be able to bring it to Spectacle Lake.

If you plan on keeping fish, you must be able to clean them.

Organizer

Ontario Women Anglers

Ontario Women Anglers is an organization that provides a variety of programs aimed at getting more women and children outdoors and involved in fishing. Through anglers’ education workshops, hands-on activities, fishing excursions, community events and mentorship, Ontario Women Anglers provides opportunities for both new and experienced female anglers to increase their fishing skills and to network with others that share this passion. 

 

We are completely non-profit, volunteer driven and receive the generous support of individuals and businesses in the fishing industry.

 

Fishing 101 for Women is a program that offers seminars, fishing opportunities and instruction for women that are interested in learning the basics of recreational angling. Participants are provided with the tools and knowledge to start fishing on their own and so they can bring their children out to fish with the confidence of knowing how to set up a rod, bait a hook, release a fish and much more.

 

Other seminar topics include licensing and regulations, safety, fish identification, rods, reels and equipment, conservation, community and online resources, fishing with children and much more. After each seminar, women have an opportunity to put their new knowledge into practice by participating in a fishing activity from shore on a local body of water.
