Licence-free fishing week July 2-10, 2016


Ontario family fishing events are taking place in Ontario from July 2nd until July 10th .  This means you do not have to purchase the mandatory  fishing license to legally fish during this time. The province of Ontario allows everyone to fish without a fishing license twice a year. It is important to remember that although everyone can fish without a license during this time you still must fish under the Conservation fishing license limits, which are set out in the current Ontario Recreational Fishing Regulations Summary

This is a great time to be introduced to the sport of fishing. There are many events happening across the province where you can go fishing or learn to fish for your first time. To find an event near you visit Ontario Family Fishing.
