Ontario Family Fishing Events
Ontario Family Fishing Events is a province wide opportunity for Canadian residents to fish Ontario waters without the otherwise mandatory fishing version outdoors card. The Ontario Government designates two periods throughout the year as licence-free, the 3-day Family Day Weekend in February, and a full 9 days in July, which coincides with National Fishing Week.
Head out on your own, bring a friend along and introduce them to fishing, or participate in a local event. Fishing festivals, clinics, derbies and workshops are hosted across the province, visit our website to find an event near you.
