The Nelson Rod & Gun Club is hosting a Kids Fishing Day as part of BC Wildlife Family Fishing Day.

The Fishing Forever event is set for Saturday, June 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Cottonwood Lake south of Nelson on Highway 6.

BC Wildlife Family Fishing Day is an opportunity to tackle fishing for the first time or indulge in a lifelong passion.

B.C. Wildlife Federation member clubs are hosting family-friendly event all over British Columbia in partnership with the Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. 

Throughout the province, experienced anglers will be on hand to help you bait a hook, tie your first lure and drop a line in the water at a lake brimming with fish.

More than 800 lakes and rivers in B.C. are stocked with fish each year to support angling. 

No license is required!

From Friday June 16 to Sunday June 18, anyone who has lived in Canada for the past 12 months can fish in fresh water for free, without buying a license. 

Family Fishing Weekend events often include family barbeques, fly-tying clinics, free rod and tackle loans, children’s fishing clinics, and stream clean-up projects.
