Young sport fishers’ program has 25 years old! Discover the history of the program and how two organizations deploy their fishing initiation activities in urban and natural environments with the interactive sheet 25 ans de Pêche en herbe.
The Young sport fishers’ program introduces young people aged 6 to 17 to sport fishing (ice fishing and summer fishing).
See the promotional video of the program.
Promote the development of a new generation of fishers in Quebec.
Groups of youth 6 to 17 years are invited to spend a day close to a body of water where they will learn about fish biology, the basics of fishing, respect for the environment, regulation, and concepts of safety.
During this day-long activity, a fishing rod (or tip-up), as well as a valid fishing licence for up to 18 years of age, are provided to each participant to encourage them to go fishing again. Furthermore, each youth receives an educational brochure « Moi je pêche avec … Guliver! » ou « La pêche blanche avec … Guliver! ».
