The 18th annual fishing festival, where children and adults alike can fish for free at the Centre de la nature, starts on May 17.

For three days the lake will be stocked with thousands of trout to introduce families to the sport of fishing. The body of water will be entirely reserved for those 17-years-old and under on Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.. Inflatable games will also be available for the younger children.
