Where Are The Fish

Fishing licenses are required to fish in Ontario for anyone aged 18 to 65. There are also various limits set on fish. You can pick up complete fishing regulations at any branch of the Ministry of Natural Resources, at many tourist information booths, at bait and tackle shops, and from our web site .

Ontario has an annual Family Fishing Weekend. Canadian residents do not need a license to fish on that weekend but limits still apply.

Please think safety first when around water with children. Remember to always wear your Personal Floatation Device when angling and especially when youngsters are near the water.

The lakes and rivers in this brochure are readily accessible by car and have been chosen with families in mind. Fishing can be done from the shoreline and boats are not required. For information about other great places to fish in Sudbury please contact the MNR or ask at a local bait shop.
