FFSBC launches "Fishing in the City" program
Posted on April 11th, 2008 by Rodney Hsu, webmaster

VANCOUVER – Lower Mainland residents will be able to enjoy three unique urban fishing opportunities this spring and summer thanks to the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC’s new Fishing in the City program. “We know that sometimes it’s difficult to get out of the city to go fishing, so this year we’re bringing enhanced fishing opportunities into the city,” said FFSBC Vice-President Brian Chan.

As part of the Fishing in the City program, the FFSBC will be conducting enhanced trout stocking activities at Rice Lake in North Vancouver and Lafarge and Como lakes in Coquitlam. These repeated stocking activities will ensure that the three lakes offer excellent fishing opportunities for shore-based anglers throughout the spring and early summer, and again in the fall. Working in partnership with local governments, the FFSBC will also erect special on-site signage providing additional information to anglers.

“While the society stocks dozens of lakes across the Lower Mainland, we hope that these three lakes will offer new fishing opportunities for young and novice anglers or those who want to get back into the sport” said program coordinator Stacy Webb. “Children under the age of 16 can fish for free, and we’ve even reserved fishing at Como Lake for children and seniors.” Adults can purchase a freshwater licence at their local tackle shop or buy one on-line.

For fishing tips and tricks and lake stocking information in the Lower Mainland please contact the Fraser Valley Trout Hatchery Visitor’s Centre at 604-504-4716 or visit us online.
