Free family fishing comes to Ontario this weekend

If you’ve ever wanted to try fishing, you’ve got a chance to cast some lines for free over the weekend. 

The Ontario government runs four “free family fishing” weekends every year, allowing residents to fish in the province without buying a license. 

The first free weekend of 2024 runs from this Saturday, February 17th, to Monday the 19th. 

During those days, you’ll need to follow the catch and possession limits of a “conservation” fishing license.

One-day “sport” licenses are available to buy if you want to catch more. 

You’ll also need to carry a government-issued ID with your name and date of birth, like a health card or driver’s license. 

The next free fishing opportunity is happening in May, to celebrate Mother’s Day.
