Port Colborne & District Conservation Club Donates $10,000

Posted by Michelle Cuthbert on Thursday, May 10th, 2018

The Port Colborne & District Conservation Club (PCDCC) donated $10,000 to the City of Port Colborne and Sugarloaf Marina to extend the fishing docks in the lagoon. 

The project will be implemented in 2019 and the City will look to match funding through various grants and/or the Capital Projects budget in 2019. The original fishing docks in the lagoon were provided to Sugarloaf Marina by the PCDCC with the funds acquired from Port Colborne being named the 2013 World Fishing Network (WFN) Ultimate Fishing Town.

The $10,000 donated by the PCDCC was generated from multiple initiatives they undertake in the community, including trap & skeet shoots, archery, and the 444 International Walleye Tournament.

“We are very appreciative of the support we receive from the Port Colborne & District Conservation Club. They are a very active group that take on great projects that contribute to our success at the marina,” commented Mark Minor, Sugarloaf Marina Supervisor. 

Although the 444 International Walleye Tournament is not returning in 2018, some of the initiatives the PCDCC have planned include the FREE Kids Fishing Derby on June 17, 2018 at H.H. Knoll Lakeview Park (registration starts at 8 a.m.), and selling tickets for the Duck Race at the 40th Annual Canal Days Marine Heritage Festival. The PCDCC also operates a walleye hatchery as their way of replenishing the species in our local fisheries, as walleye is typically not catch and release. Once hatched, the PCDCC releases the walleye into the Welland River, as per the mandate provided by the Ministry of Natural Resources.
