The Future of Fishing – Introduce Kids to Fishing!
If it wasn’t for my dads friend Arnold, I would not be the person I am today. Annual fishing trips on Lake Kashwakamak shaped me into a passionate angler that enjoys passing the sport onto others. Tonight I took a few hours of my time to catch some fish with Kayla and Sophie and their mom – my friend Stacee.

My hometown Napanee, offers a great location to fish off the boardwalk with benches and pretty scenery to enjoy. I have caught bass, pike, walleye, sheepshead, pumpkinseeds, bluegills, perch and more off the docks. It’s a great place for kids with washrooms nearby and the docks are safe and wide to fish from.

Way to go Kayla!
By the end of our fishing excursion, the girls were hooking worms, and catching fish without assistance. Way to go Kayla and Sophie! If you ever get the chance to take some kids fishing, please do. You never know what you will inspire!
