Shimano Fish Pond
"Let's go fishing!" are the famous words that are bound to kick start a memorable family vacation or weekend adventure. However, senior citizens, people with special needs, and junior anglers are often not afforded these opportunities due to physical or financial limitations.
That's why, every year, the pond is available to students, senior citizens, community groups and guests with special needs and allows participation in barrier free fishing.
"Fishing is a fundamental part of our Canadian heritage," said OFAH Executive Director Mike Reader, "and we're excited to offer residents, regardless of ability or disability, the opportunity to go fishing, in a safe and supervised environment."
Fishing equipment and instruction are provided free of charge through OFAH TackleShare, however guests are asked to bring their own bait. For availability or to make a booking for your group, please contact the OFAH by e-mail or (705) 748-6324 ext. 100.
Funding for this project was made possible through the generous support of local sponsorships and the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters.
