Lafarge Lake Family Fishing Day

Posted on June 12th 2012, by Rodney Hsu, webmaster

On Saturday June 16th, the BC Federation of Drift Fishers will be hosting its family fishing day at Lafarge Lake in Coquitlam.

From 9:00am to 1:00pm, participants are welcome to try out trout fishing without having to buy a BC freshwater fishing licence. There will be a designated fish zone, a netted area with up to 600 fish in it, where kids are almost guarantee to catch a fish. Admission to the event is free.
Beside free fishing, there will be several organizations, including City of Coquitlam, displaying their projects and games. Up to 115 prizes will be given away this year during the event! Food concession will be available from Kinsmen.

Lafarge Lake is located at the heart of Coquitlam. It is part of Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC's urban fishery program, "Fishing in the City". It is regularly stocked with rainbow trout between March and June. These rainbow trout have an average weight of 250g, known as catchable size, so they are ready to be caught immediately once released.
