4th Annual Penning Event
« on: April 03, 2018, 08:51:51 pm »
Hey all,  are you looking to get involved or maybe for something to do with the family?  Look no further! 

The Halton Region Salmon and Trout Association is pleased to invite everyone out to participate in the 4th annual Chinook Salmon Penning Event to be held on April 7th commencing at 12:30 pm at the Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park in Oakville.  Members of the community and abroad are encouraged to participate in the event and engage in Bronte's fishing heritage as the Association supplements the Salmon fishery in Lake Ontario.  Friends and families including small children will be engaged and able to release 15,000 juvenile Salmon to the penning stations where monitored feeding and biological imprinting will take place as the young Salmon grow.

A day of camaraderie and fisheries awareness is what makes this event an annual success! Come out and get involved with the Halton Region Salmon and Trout Association by showing your support this Saturday!  The fish are scheduled to arrive at 1:00 pm and we look forward to having you out!  Memberships and volunteer opportunities will be available as well as the opportunity to pickup your CPR derby card, so don't miss out!  For more information, please check us out on our website www.hrsalmonandtrout.com, on Facebook, and we are also on twitter @hrsalmontrout.
