Time for fishing

Fishing is back for kids at Shannon Lake.

The Regional District of Central Okanagan, Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. and the Ministry of Environment, along with many local partners, are launching the fifth annual Go Fish program, providing children 16 years of age and under a chance to experience the sport of fishing and to foster an appreciation of the environment.

Rainbow trout were to be stocked in the lake late last week in advance of the grand opening for the program at Shannon Lake Regional Park Sunday, May 1.

A similar program is  set to start in Kelowna’s Mission Creek Park May 7.

There the fish will be in the Hall Road pond in Mission Creek Regional Park.
