PETERBOROUGH, ON – Fishing is a wonderful activity for people of all ages, and a great way to spend some quality time with friends and family this summer.
With that in mind, there’s no better time than now to drop a line in the water with the launch of Ontario Family Fishing Week 2016, which gets underway July 2 and runs through July 10. During that span, clubs and service organizations across the province will be hosting a number of free family-friendly fishing events designed to bring families together on one of Ontario’s 250,000 lakes, rivers or streams.
Ontario Family Fishing Events (OFFE) is an initiative of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) delivered by the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH), in partnership with members of the OFFE steering committee, which includes the MNRF, the OFAH, and the Canadian National Sportfishing Foundation. More than 70 Ontario communities will host an event, derby, or festival over a nine-day span and these events are run in conjunction with National Fishing Week — www.catchfishing.com.
