Learn to Fish Niagara River 2024

Last year, the Niagara River Remedial Action Plan (NRRAP) team partnered with Learn to Fish Ontario to help us get kids and adults learning the basics of fishing and enjoying the Niagara River! The event was so much fun that we’re hosting it with Learn to Fish Ontario again this year! Scroll down for more information!

Join us and the experts from Learn to Fish Ontario for a two-hour teaching experience on Saturday, July 6th at 10 am and 1pm at Donald Pigeon Park (641 Niagara River Blvd., Fort Erie, ON L2A 3W1).

Please see the above map for the Learn to Fish Niagara River location (641 Niagara River BLVD., Fort Erie, ON L2A 3W1).

Friendly instructors will explain how to use fishing equipment, share some basic tips about fish identification, and demonstrate how to fish legally, safely, and sustainably. Then, participants will fish the Upper Niagara River shoreline to put their knowledge to use!

Rods, reels, bait, and lifejackets will be provided. A fishing licence is not required for this event as a day licence is included with the event, but also because it is free family fishing week in Ontario!

If you would like to participate in this year’s event, there are two options:

  1. Pre-register for one of the time slots for the Niagara River event via the blue button below OR
  2. Walk-ins are welcome on a first come, first serve basis. These spots will fill up fast so it is advised to get there early.

This event is made possible with support from Environment and Climate Change Canada and Ontario Ministry of the Environment Conservation and Parks, in collaboration with the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority and Niagara Parks Commission.
