2015 Urban Fishing Festival

  • Humber Bay Park East 2225 Lake Shore Blvd W Toronto, ON, M8V 0B1 Canada (map)

Join our Swimmable Water Ambassadors for a family-fun day of catch-and-release at Humber Bay Park East.

Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters and the Toronto Urban Fishing Ambassadors are working hard to get more people of all ages closer to their waters. Through the TackleShare program, anyone who is interested in casting a line can drop by any of the loaner sites and pick up the gear needed for a fun and relaxing day by the water – for free!

Lake Ontario Waterkeeper’s office is officially another great TackleShare loaner site. If you need fishing gear for this event, please visit us by Friday, July 10 at 5pm.

TackleShare is touring all over Southern Ontario this summer. You can find interactive educational workshops for all levels including an introduction to fishing and lessons on aquatic habitats, conservation, and water safety.

Take a look at TackleShare’s tour schedule and see where else you can join them.
