BC Fishn – Learn to Fish at Shannon Lake

There may have been clouds in the sky, but there were sunny smiles on the faces of the kids who gathered around holes in the ice on Shannon Lake on a cold mid-January weekend.
More than 150 turned out for this year’s Family Learn to Ice Fish event in West Kelowna, organized by Danny Coyne of the Okanagan Region, B.C. Wildlife Federation, and carried out with the help of many volunteers.
Since the parking lot at Shannon Lake can only accommodate a couple of dozen cars, a shuttle was organized to bring anglers from the overflow lot at the Kinsmen Ball Park nearby.
Coyne thanked the City of West Kelowna for making that parking lot available and helping to keep all the young families safe from traffic along busy Shannon Lake Road.
This year’s event was a huge success, from the fish the kids caught to the hotdogs supplied by volunteers, commented Coyne. “Everyone had fun,” he said.
