Jerry's Kid's Fishing Day is back in a limited way!
Heber Downs Conservation Area is still not available to us for the 2016 event.
As a Volunteer group running an event for kids, we have no information about the Devils Den Pond Restoration so we cannot offer comments or predictions on it's use.
For information about Heber Down Conservation Area, please contact CLOCA.
This year we had to make the tough decision whether to cancel again or accept a very generous offer from a private group who offered a location that could accomodate a very small group of kids. We elected to run the smaller event for a select number of kids that we know may not otherwise get an opportunity to fish.
We are very fortunate to have this private location and Thankful Kid's Fishing Day is back.
The search for another location large enough to run an event for the General Public and conveniently located is still on. It's a big challenge and the Volunteers who manage this event are working diligently in case Heber Downs Conservation Area doesn't come back to us.
Anyone with a large property and Pond we can stock who is willing to host the event, is asked to contact us asap so we can plan for future years and bring this event back.
Good News! Saturday April 23rd was the

They keep you in hooks, sinkers and floats so the Kids can have a great day fishing!
As always these dedicated fishing enthusiasts are kept very busy all day un-tangling lines, handing out worms and doing everything needed to make sure the kids spend their time fishing, so it's fun all around! Got a question about fishing? Ask any of the Volunteers. They're only too happy to help and you won't be the only person there who never tied a line or baited a hook so we're ready to help with everything you need to know.
Thank you Pickering Rod & Gun Club members!!! You make Fishing Fun!
Many lucky anglers who want to keep their catch for a meal can use our fish cleaning service provided by our friends at Calvary Baptist Church, who have been a valued volunteer member of Kids Fishing Day for many years! Uxbridge will also have a Fish Cleaning service.
Our many volunteer instructors will make sure the day goes well for you and your kids. Lot's of smiling faces, excited screams of delight and kids beaming with pride will be abundant as they bag their catch to take home for lunch. Our friends from the Durham Region Police will be out in force and will keep busy helping all around the pond and with the parking!
Thanks Durham Regional Police Service!
