The City of Bayswater will run a series of fishing clinics with Recfishwest over the school holidays to encourage children to make the most of their natural environment.
The annual clinics aim to teach children new skills, safe fishing techniques and how to care for our environment while enjoying a healthy hobby.
Mayor Dan Bull said the clinics were time well spent in the great outdoors.
"These clinics teach children the importance of sustainable and safe fishing practices," Mayor Bull said.
"The great thing about the City of Bayswater is that we have the river right here on our doorstep, so you can literally fish in the city.
"Learning to fish is a great life skill for kids and a fun and interactive school holiday activity. These clinics encourage children to be outside and enjoy the fresh air while also learning something new."
Two workshops will take place during the Christmas school holidays; the first on Wednesday, 20 December at 9am and the second on Monday, 22 January at 9am at Hinds Reserve in Milne Street, Bayswater.
All fishing gear, tackle, bait and sunscreen will be provided. There will also be a free sausage sizzle following the clinics.
The clinics are open to anyone under the age of 17; participants under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
