The Battle River Watershed Alliance is promoting this Alberta-wide event within our region. Fishing is a great activity to get outside and explore your watershed while gaining an appreciation for ecosystems and your food!
Family Fishing Weekend is a free event which allows anyone to try fishing without a sportfishing license. You must still only fish at locations with an open fishing season, and follow all other rules. Scroll down for resources, links, and maps for more information.
- Take a photo of your or your friends/family enjoying a waterbody on this July 3/4 weekend. You could be fishing or any other water sport!
- Tag us in a post on social media using the hastag #BattleRiverWatershed. Not on social? Email us the photo.
- Entries are due on Monday July 5th.
- The BRWA staff will select 5 lucky winners to receive a gift basket. Winners will be selected by location, activity, and photo composition.
