Ontario club promotes Urban Fishing Festival

The Aurora Bassmasters volunteered to help organize and run the annual Fairy Lake Urban Fishing Festival in Newmarket, Ontario.

The goal is to highlight Fairy Lake as a public urban fishery to local residents, especially children and families. During the festival, members of the Aurora Bassmasters promoted safe and effective fish handling, invasive species awareness, conservation principles and a sense of stewardship for the aquatic resource.
