Ontario Non Resident Fishing License Question ???


Go to solution Solved by Dwight Hottle,

Recommended Posts

So it’s been almost 15 years since I’ve fished in Canadian waters; and I notice there are two Non-Resident licenses available. (1) Sport Fishing License and (2) Conservation Fishing License. What exactly are the differences and can a Tournament angler just choose the Conservation license if they are going to catch, weigh at the shore and then release live back into the lake ? Any info on this would be appreciated because the website Ontario.CA wasn’t completely clear about what license would be required for this specific situation.

Technically you would be in violation with a 5 fish limit because the conservation license only allows two bass in your possession unless there is a special exemption for tournaments.

Limits vary based on the zone you're fishing in.  You're best bet is to check the regulation summary:

This is the information I was trying to obtain. Thank You

I haven’t found any exceptions written in the Regulations book; so it looks like the Outdoor Card and Sports License is the way to go for a 5 Fish Tournament. And Thank You
