  • Get out and celebrate the arrival of the spring fishing season! This is a perfect opportunity for families to enjoy the outdoors together, or friends to engage in some friendly (& safely distanced) competition!


    This year marks the festival's 40th anniversary.‚Äč Due to the pandemic-related public health restrictions, the event will look a little different this year, but there will still be plenty of family fun and prizes to be had. Here is how the festival will work this year:

    • You can fish anywhere in Simcoe County or on Lake Simcoe.
    • When you catch a perch, take a photo and submit it for a chance at that day's daily draw. Your entry also qualifies you for the weekly and grand prize draw.
    • Every perch could be a tagged perch!! When you submit your perch picture, it is automatically entered into our online system where randomizing technology matches a tag with a winning fish each day.
