Cornwall - Apr. 19, 2011 - Is Cornwall the ultimate fishing town? Cornwall resident Leonard Waring thinks so and he is hoping area residents will join with him in his quest to have Cornwall named as Canada’s Ultimate Fishing town.
In 2007, Cornwall made it to the finals in the Kraft CBC Hockeyville competition and Waring wants to see the city win the WFN: World Fishing Network’s upcoming challenge. The winning community will receive a $25,000 donation that will be used towards any local fishing related cause.
WFN has narrowed the nominations down to 20 communities and public voting began on April 12th.
“There are many sport fish species such as pike, bass, walleye, muskie and the local favourite yellow perch in this area. The area is also a favourite for foreign carp fisherman. Sturgeon are also in this area…”
Voting for the Ultimate fishing town is now open. All those who enjoy fishing in the area are encouraged to vote at least three times a day to get in the top 20 for our region in order to advance to the finals. The four voting blocks are:
Voting Block One -12:01am to 6:00am
Voting Block Two -6:01am to12:00pm
Voting Block Three -12:01pm to 6:00pm
Voting Block Four - 6:01pm to 12:00am
