FISH OUTS

Fish Outs

(For insurance purposes, Fish-outs are for members only. If questions, please ask.)

Fish-outs are offered by the Club as an opportunity for members to get together and enjoy a day of fishing with other Club members. Many members find that Fish-outs not only give them the motivation to get out on the water but also explore fishing opportunities they may not otherwise discover. While these are not intended solely as educational outings, participants find they broaden their knowledge of our local area and improve their skills by association with the more seasoned members of the club.

The Fish-Out Committee has prepared a new schedule for 2020.    Fish-outs are planned with a variety of options including weekend and weekday events, access to all types of water courses (lakes, rivers, and beaches) and seasonal fly fishing opportunities (Rainbow Trout in Spring and Pink Salmon in Fall).

2020 FISH OUTS Watch this page for regular updates

Notice:  Due to the current Social Distancing Rules recommended by the provincial government, all scheduled Fish Outs for the 2020 season are cancelled until further notice. However, the MICFFC encourages members to go fishing with friends and members as long as appropriate social distancing and other government recommended rules to avoid potentially contracting COVID-19 are practiced.  We look forward to being able to re-establish regularly scheduled Fish Outs in the near future.

Check us out on Facebook to see who is out fishing.  Best Regards, Michel Vallee
