Scugog Arts Fishing Derby
This is your invitation to go fishing and let your creative side out at the same time! Fishing is a BIG part of Scugog culture, so grab a pole (that we will provide) and cast your line into our onsite mini Lake Scugog. Participants have the chance to catch 'fish' that would typically be found in our beautiful lake such as perch, sunfish, and largemouth bass. The derby will go until we're out of 'fish'! How It Works: The fish are made of wood. Participants will use a fishing pole with a magnet on the end and cast into a pool of water. Washers painted with different colors indicating fish size will be upside down in the water adding a bit of mystery. Once a fish has been 'caught' participants will get to paint it and take it home as a trophy. Jon Colwell, local artist and Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation, carved and provided the wooden fish for this activity. COVID-19 policies and guidelines will be in place at all Scugog Arts programs. Masks will need to be worn while inside the hub.
This event is free and will be accepting optional pay-what-you-may donations for admission.
