Fishers are welcome at Little Lake and Orr Lake in Springwater. You can also fish at several smaller creeks, rivers and ponds. See the Fish ON-Line Map for regulatory and stocking details on each spot.
Tips for a good fishing experience
Be considerate, have fun and stay safe
Be polite to your fishing neighbours and the environment by following these rules:
Choose the right location
Don't trespass when choosing a place to fish. All fishing sites are on public land and it's your responsibility to make sure you aren't on private property.
With the exception of Family Fishing Weeks, you need a licence to fish in Ontario. Visit the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry's website for information on how and where to get a licence.
Know what you can and can't eat
You can't always eat what you catch. Check the guide for Eating Ontario Fish or call 1-800-820-2716 to order a copy.
Learn about the rules and regulations
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry identifies fishing rules, size limits and size restrictions. Visit their website for more information.
Licence-free family fishing
Four times a year, Canadian residents can fish in Ontario without buying a fishing licence, during:
- Family Fishing Weekend in February
- Mother's Day Weekend in May
- Father's Day Weekend in June
- Family Fishing Week in July
Remember to follow fishing regulations and obey size and catch limits.
