The Ministry of Natural Resources is launching a new, interactive and easy to use online tool that will help anglers and aspiring anglers plan a fishing trip from start to finish.

With just a few clicks, anglers can find information for more than 13,000 lakes in Ontario via a searchable, Google-based mapping application that tells them what fish species are available in which lakes, what lakes they should visit to catch their favourite species, where the nearest ServiceOntario location for fishing licenses is located, what regulations have to be followed and how to get to destinations.

Approximately 1.3 million anglers fish in Ontario annually and they catch more than 100 million fish and spend $2.5 billion.
