BC Family Fishing Weekend


This is the weekend when there are plenty of reasons to go fishing! Enjoy time outdoors… discover a great sport… spend time with family and friends… B.C.’s Family Fishing is an event for any Canadian who has ever wanted to try fishing and spend time in B.C.’s great outdoors. And you do not need to buy or carry a basic license to fish most of B.C.’s thousands of lakes and streams. The province of B.C. provides at no charge a complementary three-day basic freshwater license.* What a perfect opportunity to try one of B.C.’s great recreational pastimes and what a great way to spend time with a family member or friend.

* To fish tidal waters (saltwater), a purchased Tidal Waters Sport
Fishing Licence is required for people 16 and over, but is free for
anyone under 16.
