Loaner Sites

Borrowing fishing equipment as easy as checking out a library book

How Does It Work?

Fishing rods, reels, and tackle boxes can be borrowed from over 140 loaner sites across Ontario, just like checking out a library book! Loaner sites are typically open from June to September each year, some are open later and earlier in the season. Please check with the location you intend to visit to confirm availability.

  • Find your nearest loaner site*
  • Call to ensure rods are available
  • Fill out a quick sign-out form
  • Go fishing and have fun!
  • Return gear to the same location (maximum loan duration varies by site)
  • And repeat!

    Sites operate spring to fall. (Some locations may vary).

Interested in Becoming a Loaner Site?

The addition of new loaner sites is done on a case-by-case basis depending on equipment availability and the suitability of the site. While we are currently not adding new loaner sites, all applications will be kept on file for future consideration should additional resources become available.
