2017 Ontario Fishing Regulations

Mar 15, 2017

With spring just days away, you may be thinking about fishing season. The 2017 Ontario Fishing Regulations were released earlier this year and there are a couple things to make note of.

Smelt can be caught using dip or seine nets, between March 1st - May 31st. As pickerel (walleye) will be spawning during this time, please be careful to only take smelt.


There are size limits for certain species of fish "S-" refers to Sport Licence possession limits and "C-" refers to Conservation License possession limits. Know your limit, and fish within it!
