About National Fishing Week

With over 1 million lakes, rivers and streams plus three oceans, Canada can justly boast one of the most diverse natural environments on the planet. Fishing offers Canadians an opportunity to experience this vast landscape for themselves.

Visit our regulations page to find out about fishing regulations in your area or by visiting your provincial government website.

National Fishing Week is supported by Catch Fishing, a national program dedicated to encouraging Canadians to get outdoors and enjoy our angling heritage throughout the year. It is supported by federal, provincial and territorial governments, as well as hundreds of organizations and businesses that work hard to ensure sustainable fishing opportunities while safeguarding fish populations everywhere. We appreciate your support to help keep this important program going and growing!
