SRG Youth Ice Fishing EventFebruary 20
The Sackville Rod and Gun Club are holding an ice fishing day at Silver Lake (Morice Pond) on Saturday, February 20, 2021. The event will be held between 9-11am at no cost to participants. Participants can park and meet us at the Lillas Fawcett Park and we will leave from there.
Residents under the age of 16 can fish for Brook trout without needing to purchase a license. Also, from changes to the provincial fishing laws, anyone 16 and older who purchased their regular angling license this year can ice fish for no cost. So many parents may wish to try their hand at fishing with us.
We will pre-register up to 20 children between the ages of 5 and 15 to come and spend this time with us learning about ice fishing. We will provide the equipment and bait for these children to ice fish this event.
Participants are encouraged to dress according to the weather, and layers are recommended. Parents are asked to accompany their children if they are under 13, and are encouraged to stay with the older children as well.
Because of COVID, groups around one hole will need to be part of the same family or “steady 10” bubble. You must pre-register and attendance will be kept. Rods should not be shared and will be sanitized between users. Masks are encouraged, and mandatory when physical distancing cannot be maintained. Maximum attendance of 50 including volunteers and parents will be maintained. There will NOT be a warming tent or refreshments this year.
To register, please call Paul and Shirley Branscombe at 506-536-3539
This event will be subject to ice and weather conditions as safety is a primary consideration for us. It will also be cancelled in the event our zone returns to “red” level COVID restrictions. Any cancellations will be communicated through our social media, email, and website.
