Barrie Fall Fishing Festival
Friday, September 20, 2019 - Sunday, September 29, 2019
The 2019 Barrie Fall Fishing Festival is a catch and release tagged Perch fishing tournament taking place over 10 days from September 20th to September 29th, 2019 on beautiful Kempenfelt Bay. It encourages anglers of all ages and skill levels to enjoy fishing, the beautiful fall weather, and the spectacular fall colours of Kempenfelt Bay from boat or shore.
A prize pool is in excess of $40,000 & is expected to attract 1,000+ anglers over the 10 days of the festival.
The net proceeds from the Fishing Festival benefits Environmental Projects (related to improving the health & wellbeing of Lake Simcoe) and many other local community projects of the Rotary Club of Barrie Huronia (including Rotary House, the lodge for cancer treatment patients and their families at the Regional Cancer Care Centre in Barrie). This year Rotary is supporting the Dock Project which will be a new Dock positioned on the Kempenfelt Bay Shoreline in the Heritage Park.
