This year is the 20th anniversary of the Family Fishing Weekend, a free event with hands-on instruction available. Loaner rods, reels and tackle are provided for those who do not have their own gear. The events also offer opportunities to learn about fishing gear, share freshwater and saltwater fishing tips and learn about environmental stewardship and the tradition of recreational fishing.

Fishing licence requirements are waived for the weekend, meaning Canadian residents can fish licence-free over the three days, although some requirements remain in effect.

“We are excited to see the growth of these events and how they have evolved into a fundamental family tradition in many communities,” said Cam Aronetz, Family Fishing Society president. “We would love to see fishing with dad on Father’s Day become the equivalent of Mother’s Day brunch with mom.”
