Canada’s National Fishing Week

Canada’s National Fishing Week: Join the Tradition

Peterborough, ON: This summer, join a tradition that connects Canadians across the country: fishing.

From June 30 to July 8th, 2018, people from coast, to coast, to coast will cast their lines in hopes of catching the big one. National Fishing Week is a celebration of tradition — a time to pass down the thrill of this centuries-old pastime and build memories with friends and loved ones. From the first fish you reel in, to your latest story of the one that got away, fishing fosters a passion for the outdoors and our heritage as Canadians.

So, get outside this summer! Visit the hidden wonders this country offers. Enjoy the sport that is both exciting and serene, relaxing and a form of exercise. Regardless of your motivations, the result is always fun.
