13th annual Bob Izumi’s Kids, Cops and Canadian Tire Fishing Days casting its line this weekend

“It’s meant to be a day for parents, grandparents and kids to enjoy spending a day out on the lake together,” organizer of the Bob Izumi’s Kids, Cops and Canadian Tire Fishing Days Brandie Dubreuil says.

The 13th annual event is happening on March 7th on Poverty Lake in Whitney. It’s free-to-enter and lunch will be provided. Dubreuil says that you will need to bring your own fishing equipment and a fishing license will be required for the adults. She also suggests bringing an extra pair of mittens. “Guaranteed they’re going to get wet,” she jokes. Chili, hot dogs and hot chocolate will also be provided to all attendees.

Registration starts at 8:30 AM with the event going on until noon. All kids will get loot bags once they register.

When noon hits, the weigh-ins will begin and prizes will be handed out. “Last year we had 27 kids catch a fish, so we worked it out that they each came up and picked their own prize,” Dubreuil tells the newsroom. “We try to work it out so that if they caught a fish, they get a prize.”

“It’s based on donations,” she explains. Dubreuil says you can still donate by sending prizes to the Township of South Algonquin, who are partners for the event.
