Celebrate Free Family Fishing Week Starting July 1st!

Family Fishing

With summer officially here, celebrate the warm weather and the great outdoors by fishing licence-free with the whole family from July 1st through July 9th, 2017.

Families across the province can take part in Free Family Fishing Week by finding a good nearby fishing spot through Ontario’s Fish ON-Line website, or by learning the ropes of fishing at one of many community angling events, including:

Anglers are reminded to follow the rules for fishing in Ontario and stick to the daily fishing limits to help preserve and protect our province’s fish populations.


  • Approximately 1 million fishing licences are sold in in Ontario each year.
  • Fish license fees go back into programs that help stock Ontario waterways, conduct biological research and support conservation projects.
  • Ontario’s lakes and rivers are home to approximately 160 types of freshwater fish.
  • New anglers can borrow fishing gear for free through the Tackleshare program.
