Ontario Family Fishing Events

Ontario Family Fishing Events offer 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 three-day Family Day Weekend in February and a full nine days in July that 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. To find an event near you, visit
