Free Fishing to take place this weekend

If you wanted to start ice fishing this year but don’t have a licence, now you get to try it out.

This Saturday the Government of Ontario is offering a free fishing weekend. From February 19th to the 21st, people can fish without a licence in Ontario. The government is urging everyone to carry a piece of ID showing their date of birth and name and to stay within catch limits. They’re also asking fishers to obey size limits and to respect sanctuaries.

The TackleShare Program fun by the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters offers loan equipment for those looking to fish for free on the weekend. They list the Barry’s Bay Train Station as one of the sites that can loan out equipment. Sites closer to Bancroft like Lake St. Peter and Silent Lake Provincial Park are not available at this time.
