With the most important fishing week of the year kicking-off this Saturday, anglers are being reminded of what this great sport is all about.
National Fishing Week & ON’s Family Fishing Weekend are about educating and informing the public on the merits of sport-fishing in Canada. During NFW, veteran anglers are encouraged to lend their support – offering those new to the sport a chance to cast a line and discover the fulfillment of fishing in this great country of ours.
In celebration of National Fishing Week, all walks of life -young or old – are encouraged to plan a fishing day at the nearest stream, pond, river or lake. More than 1.3 million licensed anglers participate in recreational fisheries and contribute approximately $2.5 billion to the Ontario economy each year.
Take note that no fishing license is required in Ontario between July 4 – 12, so regardless of what you have planned this weekend, try to include some time on the water. I know I will!
