Attention all residents of Uxbridge and area…let’s go fishing again! Yes, it’s that time of year! Last year we reformatted the Huck Finn Youth Fishing days from a one day event to a several day event. You can fish at Elgin Pond at your leisure between Saturday, April 22nd and Saturday, April 29th.  Daily prizes to be won. Submit pics of you and your family fishing, your catch, fun around the pond….draws to be made daily. The event, sponsored by Canadian Tire, is supported by the Ministry of Natural Resources, Uxbridge Township, the Royal Canadian Legion, the BIA, the Optimist Club, OFAH Zone G and the Pickering Rod and Gun Club.
