"You got one", that's what almost 400 young participants who took part in
this summer's Fish Winnipeg Program were saying.
Going into its 20th season, Fish Winnipeg has provided a summer full of fun
and fishing for youth who would never have had the opportunity to experience
catching a fish.
The program is offered through the City of Winnipeg Recreation Services,
Fish Futures Inc. and The Complete Angler.
The program provides participants with a half day of fishing skills and
structure. Each participant at the end of the day receives a free rod and
reel to keep.
Groups are picked up and dropped off by a fishing guide at their
neighbourhood community centre.
The program operates through generous corporate and private donations and is
open to all youth.
