June 15 – 25th Annual Family Fishing Weekend at Champion Lakes Provincial Park.

Get those fishing rods ready or come borrow one and join CKISS, BC Parks and other community members for the 25th annual Family Fishing Weekend! CKISS will have an outreach booth set up at Champion Lakes Provincial Park on Saturday June 15. We have a wealth of great resources to remind you to Clean, Drain, Dry your watercraft. With the recent discovery of whirling disease in BC and invasive mussels knocking on the province’s doorstep, it’s more important than ever to be a responsible angler and watercraft user. Learn what you can do to prevent the spread of invasive species and keep our fish stocks plentiful!

Celebrate B.C.’s Family Fishing Weekend!

B.C.’s Family Fishing Weekend is an annual celebration of fishing that coincides with the Father’s Day weekend. This is a great chance to get together with family and friends and try fishing! Fish for free during the Father’s Day weekend. Right through the third weekend in June (including the immediately preceding Friday), our provincial government waives the requirement for residents of Canada – individuals who have lived in Canada for the preceding 12 months – to buy or carry a non-tidal (freshwater) basic fishing licence. There are some restrictions, so please click here to find out details.

Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy a fun and educational weekend, and help us protect our beautiful waters!
