Part of the full Muskoka experience is fishing. Get out onto Gravenhurst’s clear lakes to combine the relaxing fresh air and the thrill of the catch into one unforgettable memory.
Before you get out onto the lakes, it is important to have a valid fishing licence. You can purchase a fishing licence, along with your equipment, at the Canadian Tire store. For information on open seasons, catch limits, and more, visit the Fishing Ontario website.
There are two main fishing licenses:
- Sportsman License – This allows you to keep the full legal limit of the species you’re angling for.
- Conservation License – This allows you to keep half the legal limit of the species you’re angling for.
Ontario Family Fishing is a province-wide opportunity for Canadian residents to fish Ontario waters without the otherwise mandatory fishing licenses. There are two designated periods throughout the year that you can fish license-free.
Remember to always consult your fishing regulations before heading out on a new body of water. Fish safe, fish hard.
