For Ontarians fishing without a fishing licence in Ontario Provincial waters, there will be no tickets issued between July 2-10, 2011.
Beginning on the Canada Day weekend, the Ontario has waived the requirement for a fishing licence between July 2-10, 2011 for Ontario residents (An Ontario resident is defined as a person whose primary residence is in Ontario and who has lived in Ontario for a period of at least six consecutive months during the 12 months immediately before applying for a licence).
If you fish without a licence during Family Fishing Week, you must follow the conservation licence limits set out in the 2011 Recreational Fishing Regulations Summary.
