If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at ice fishing, this weekend will be the time to do it.
The MNR says over the long weekend anglers can fish for free without a license.
If you are thinking about taking up ice fishing the MNR is asking the public to be careful when venturing out onto the ice.
With the mild winter there have been a few instances of thin ice and northern residents being unsafe on the ice, especially where there are strong currents running beneath it.
You’re free to fish without a license from the 13th to the 15th over this long weekend.
