Father’s Day fishing a hit at Biff’s Ponds

It was a great weekend at Biff’s Ponds during the weekend as families and friends enjoyed a weekend of fishing.

Billed the annual Father’s Day Fishing Weekend, Val and Wayne Biffert, who maintain what’s known as Biff’s Ponds, said it was a success by all accounts, despite turnout being down slightly from previous years.

Val said this is the fifth consecutive year they’ve hosted the event.

“We were a little bit down from last year but there’s still more hours to go,” Val said. “We’ve had great participation and thank you to everyone.”

She noted Go Fish BC stocks the ponds each May, while the BC Wildlife Federation and the Williams Lake Sportsmen’s Association also helped support the event.

Prizes were also awarded, donated by the aforementioned organizations.

“It was a great day because it’s not raining and we had a bit of wind so it kept the mosquitoes away,” Val said.

“Thank you to all the volunteers that came. We had 11 and we couldn’t do it without them. They were out there cooking and helping people fish.”
