Q?

I live outside of Canada. Do I need a license to fish in Ontario?

A.

This information comes from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.

Anyone who lives outside of Canada is considered a non-resident for the purposes of fishing licence regulations. Most non-residents need a fishing licence to fish in Ontario. Specifically:

  • Non-residents 18 years of age and over must purchase a fishing licence.
  • Non-residents under 18 years of age may fish without a licence if accompanied by a adult who has a recreational fishing licence. Any fish caught are part of the catch and possession limit of the adult who holds the licence. As another option, non-residents under 18 years may purchase a licence and any fish caught apply to the catch and possession limits of that licence.

Non-residents 65 years of age or older are not exempt from licencing.

NOTE: Non-residents camping on Crown land in Northwestern Ontario must observe Conservation Licence limits in the following Fishing Divisions: Divs. 20, 21, 22, 22A, 24, 31, 33 and 34, except for in the border waters area (see Licences for Provincial and International Border Waters).

For non-resident groups of children (at least five people under the age of 18 years accompanied by a licenced adult) there is a special Licence for Members of an Organized Camp. This licence is available from Ministry of Natural Resources offices.

Q?

How should I package and transport fish I catch?

A.

When fishing on waters where size limits are applicable, it's compulsory your practice the following:

  • Keep your fish whole while on the water (you may gill and gut)
  • If you stop for shore lunch, you may only clean fish to be eaten
  • Once you are off the water for the day you can clean, fillet, and package your fish

Fish should be packaged in the following manner:

  • Fish fillets are to be kept whole, laid flat, with no more tan one fish (i.e. two fillets) per package
  •  About one square inch (nine square centimeters) of skin should be left on each fillet
  • Packages must be separate and are best made of clear plastic material

IMPORTANT: Fish Fillet Lengths Must Be Measurable!
