Description

Want to know what's in the water? Learn to fish from experienced anglers right here on the Thames River. Join us as we partner with Learn To Fish to provide you with all the equipment and skills you will need.

This event will focus on the basics of fishing as well as the river itself. Dr. Tim Hain from Western University will also be joining us to talk about various fish species, habitats, and river health. From setting up and baiting your fishing rod to proper casting techniques, we will be sure to cover everything you need to know to get started! Fishing licence for the day is also provided. This event is geared towards absolute beginners...so if you're already an expert, please share with friends and family, and get them hooked as well!

Participants must be 10 years of age or older, and participants under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult. To participate in this event, please know that you will need a basic level of fitness, as we will be outdoors and standing the whole time.

Event registration is free, donations are very much appreciated! Due to limited space on this trip, all wishing to participate must register in advance.
