St. Mike’s students learn to ice fish

On their first time out ice fishing, St. Michael’s High School students Amber Robinson and Lydia Lemieux caught the only fish of the morning during a school fishing field trip.

A group of 50 St. Michael’s High School in Low students strolled out onto the Gatineau River on the snowy morning of Feb. 25 but only eighth graders Robinson, of Cantley, and Lemieux, of Wakefield, caught one little fish – a perch about six inches long – which they released after unhooking it.
