Due to the province of Ontario’s COVID-19 restrictions this year’s children’s fishing derby will be for Members only, no guests.
Member’s children who are Canadian residents under 18 years of age may fish without an Outdoors Card and license if accompanied by a paying family member who has a valid Ontario recreational fishing license. Any fish kept are part of the catch and possession limit of the person who holds the valid Ontario fishing license.
Due to the province of Ontario’s COVID-19 lockdown we ask all participants to practice social distancing and wear a face mask when communicating with other families or event coordinators when on Club Properties. We also ask families stay together in one area and not spread out to minimize interactions with other families. We understand social distancing and mask wearing are unfavorable to some however these guidelines will be enforced.
We would also like to take this opportunity to remind all members of the Sportsmen Club Galt fishing section that we are governed and therefore bound by law to adhere to the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources Recreational fishing regulations. This means that we must all conduct our fishing within the legal open season(s) of the species for which we are fishing. In addition, when fishing at the Sportsmen Club Galt pond, we must adhere to the daily legal possession limits that fall under Zone 16 of the Ontario recreational fishing regulations.
We thank you for supporting the fishing section. All monies generated from this event will be reinvested back into the Fishing Section. We look forward to having a safe and fun event!
Thank you for your continued support.
