Fishing catches on again with Campbell River teens

Everyone fishes for different reasons; some find it relaxing while others cherish the special memories that are made

Fishing is once again becoming a popular pass time for kids in Campbell River.

Teens from all different life styles and backgrounds find themselves getting into the relaxing sport.

Everyone fishes for different reasons; some find it relaxing while others cherish the special memories that are made.

“The first time I ever went fishing was when I was really young, when I started to walk,” says Katie Crombie.

“My grandpa would take me down to the river, my favorite part was always the suspense of waiting to catch a fish,” Crombie says. “Even though there was little success, those memories have stayed with me forever, the memories I made with my grandpa are the same memories I want to make with my son, when he’s old enough,”

Curtis Gaudreau explains his passion of fishing, “I started fishing the Campbell River around the age of seven. I fish because I love the challenge and the rush. Whether it’s me catching the fish or the guy next to me, I love watching the rush of fighting that fish.”

Curtis shares his passion of fishing with his younger brothers, taking them as often as he can.

Whether you’re driving along the highway, or camping at a lake, people are seen fishing everywhere.

Even our own Pier is home to some great fishing tales. It’s great to see Campbell River kids taking advantage of all of our natural activities.

With all the places and all the reasons we have to fish, it’s no wonder teens are finding themselves alongside the water.

With new adventures to be found and new memories to be made, it’s a great way for anyone, young or old to spend their time.
