FROM/DE: Upper Ottawa Valley OPP                                                         DATE: August 8, 2018
(PEMBROKE, ON)  - Upper Ottawa Valley OPP officers will be helping children learn the joys of fishing this summer during the annual Kin Club of Pembroke Kids, Cops and Canadian Tire Fishing Derby on Saturday August 11, 2018. 
Children will join local Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers to go fishing from 9 am until 12 noon at the Pembroke Marina Breakwater. Free to children 12 and under, the catch and release derby is hosted by the Pembroke Kin Club and will feature giveaways and prizes for the largest fish caught in various age categories.  Young anglers are asked to bring their own rods, reels and bait as well as an adult buddy.
This event is sponsored by Fishing Forever, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to funding worthwhile fishing, conservation and education projects. It is also supported by the Pembroke Kin Club, the Police Association of Ontario, Canadian Tire, and the Ontario Provincial Police Association (OPPA) Branch 10 North. 
According to Bob Izumi, chair of Fishing Forever, there is nothing that puts a smile on a kid’s face faster than catching a fish. “That’s why I love to create opportunities for children and families to go fishing,” states Izumi. “Fishing is one of the very best ways for parents and other adults to establish productive and healthy relationships with children.”
