10 am to 3 pm
off Bewdley Waterfront and
Gore’s Landing Government Dock
Bring your family and friends!
Equipment provided! Dress warmly!
Prizes for the kids all day!
Kids and their families will learn ice fishing techniques, etiquette, and safety, and even see fish swimming with the use of cameras lowered through holes drilled through the ice. Fishing equipment will be available for those wanting to try the sport. The ice huts will be manned by ice fishing experts and volunteers including Ben Scholtz of BJ Tackle, Jimmy Dodds of Rice Lake Hut Rentals and John Sedgwick of LetsFish Guiding … and there will be prizes for the kids. Weather and wind permitting, there will be a kite skiing demonstration at Gore’s Landing. There will also be music at Vintage Finds in Bewdley. Hot chocolate or cider will be available at two restaurants in Bewdley (Rhinos and Anchors) and in Gore’s Landing (Pitcher’s Place and The Victoria Inn).
‘Ice fishing is a great Canadian tradition’, says Northumberland County’s information co-ordinator, Teresa Grant, one of the groups – sponsoring the ‘Hut Hop’. This event takes place during the provincial Ontario Family Fishing Weekend when fishing licences are not required.
