Family Fishing Week is coming up July 5 - 13 2014

During this time you do not need a license to fish so this is the time to take advantage of free fishing. 
If you are camping during this time at Ontario parks many of the parks offer equipment to loan through the Tackle share program and learn to fish programs.  This is offered at some of the parks.

Here is the list below

EmilyDarlingtonSix Mile LakeGrundy Lake, and Earl Rowe offer OFAH/OPG Tackleshare, Learn to Fish programs, and PARKsmart – lifejacket lending services. At these parks all the gear and instruction you need for a safe and fun filled day of fishing is available.

OFAH/OPG – Tackleshare:

The OFAH/OPG Tackleshare program is offered in more than 55 parks, giving beginners an opportunity to borrow a rod and tackle. Equipment is loaned at no charge.

Other helpful fishing tips:

It is the angler’s responsibility to know what species are in season and fish possession limits. Consult the Ontario Fishing regulations before planning your fishing trip. Kids 17 and under and adults 65 and over do not require a fishing license, but all other anglers must ensure they possess a valid Ontario fishing license. Many lakes in, or partially within provincial parks have restrictions on the use of live bait – consult the Ontario Fishing regulations and be aware of these restrictions - they prevent the movement of harmful invasive species into our lakes and rivers.
Know your local weather forecast, and be prepared for the conditions. Temperatures on or around water are often cooler, and the flat open area of a water body is more susceptible to strong winds. Consider your options for accessing the water; fishing opportunities maybe available from shore, docks, canoe, kayaks, or powerboats. When targeting a species of fish, consider things like water depths, water currents water temperature, light conditions, bait, and structure under the water. These are all important variables impacting when and where you will find different species of fish.
