The sky was clear, the weather was warm and the salmon were jumping…a perfect trifecta for the 8th Annual SalmonFest at Morningside Park, Toronto.
SalmonFest is organized annually by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority. The goal is to celebrate and educate people about the annual salmon migration from Lake Ontario up the Highland Creek
This was the first year that the Scarborough Fly and Bait Casting Association has participated, and judging by the positive response we received it won’t be our last Salmonfest.
We set our booth in the large playing field at the park and did fly casting demos, talked about salmon fishing and allowed folks to try some fly casting on their own. I would say in total the event attracted in the range of 1,000 people.
