MNRF Learn to Fish program getting youth excited about fishing!

Posted on May 31st, 2015


If you have followed our Canadian Sportfishing TV series, you know that we love getting out youth involved in fishing. We’re excited about the new Ontario MNRF “Learn to Fish” initiative that is really targeting getting youth into fishing on many several levels.  This program introduces kids, teens and adults to fishing.  This fun, 2 hour program combines a practical teaching session with an hour of supervised hands-on fishing.

The program will teach you how to:

  • fish safely and sustainably
  • rig, bait and cast a fishing rod
  • identify and catch local fish species
  • get a fishing licence and follow fishing regulations
  • discover more about fishing in Ontario

We provide everything you need, including:

  • experienced instructors focused on fish, fun and safety
  • single day fishing licences
  • lifejackets and sunglasses
  • fishing rods, reels and bait


Where you can learn to fish

You can participate in the program at:

The Learn to Fish program is also included with the Learn to Camp program in these provincial parks at no extra charge.



Check back in the summer for the 2015 Learn to Fish schedule, or follow the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry on Twitter for updates.
