Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC

This local organization holds Learn to Fish workshops throughout the Lower Mainland, just for kids from 5 – 15. You don’t even need to have fishing gears, rods will be provided for the lesson. Check this PDF for details. It’s worth noting nearly all the classes require pre-registration, and you absolutely need to be there for the beginning of the class where they go over ethics and fish stocks, or you won’t be able to participate in the hands-on fishing part.
