UPDATE – Wabamun Lake Kids Can Catch – CANCELLED

February 16 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Saturday’s forecast is simply not the kind of weather organizers want to introduce hundreds of families to ice fishing. Unfortunately,  the decision had to be made to cancel the event. We want to thank all those volunteers and groups that were supporting this event and look forward to next year

ACA will post cancellation notices on www.albertakidscancatch.com and on ACA social media.

Wabamun Lake Kids Can Catch is on Saturday, February 16, 2019 from 10 am to 3 pm. It’s the conservation volunteers and local businesses that make it possible for literally hundreds of families to go ice fishing.

Looking for a new activity to get outside with your family this winter? Give ice fishing a try at Wabamun Lake Kids Can Catch. With pre-drilled holes, loaner fishing rods, and no fishing licenses required on Alberta’s Family Fishing Weekend, there’s never a better opportunity to check it out.

Date: February 16, 2019
