Canadian Fishing Regulations: What You Need to Know

More fishing opportunities are available.

There are certain bodies of water where the rules for certain species are more lenient than the regulations in the Zone. These areas are where people who enjoy fishing can catch a certain type of fish even when the regular fishing season is closed in that area. These areas have longer seasons or are open all year round. These extra opportunities are often made possible through the practice of fish stocking.

Aggregate (combined) limits.

Aggregate limits refer to the total amount or maximum limit that applies to a specific situation. In Canada, aggregate limits are applicable to various aspects such as insurance coverage, financial transactions, or legal

Aggregate or combined limits are catch and possession limits for a mix of fish species. In Canada, if there are aggregate limits, you are not allowed to catch and keep a separate limit for each species. In this summary, aggregate limits are commonly known as combined limits and they are applicable to walleye and sauger, largemouth and smallmouth bass, as well as black and white crappie.

Aggregate Fishing Regulations for trout and salmon (including splake) in Canada.

Across the province, there are set limits on the total amount of trout and salmon that can be caught, regardless of the species. In Canada, if you have a sport fishing license (S-5), you are allowed to catch and keep a maximum of five trout and salmon in one day. However, if you have a conservation fishing license (C-2), you can only catch and keep a total of two trout and salmon. In addition to the overall limit, you must also ensure that you do not exceed the specific limits for each species, as stated.


Angling refers to the act of fishing with a line that is held in the hand or attached to a rod that is held in the hand or closely monitored.

Artificial fly.

An artificial fly refers to a single or multi-pointed hook adorned with lightweight silk, wool, fur, feathers, or similar materials. However, it does not encompass other forms of artificial lures or organic bait. Wet flies, dry flies, and streamers are all types of artificial flies that are commonly used in fishing.

Artificial lure.

An artificial lure refers to a spoon, plug, jig, artificial fly, or any other device specifically designed to catch fish through angling.


Bait can consist of live or deceased animals, plants, or their respective parts. There are certain regions in the province where the use of any type of bait is prohibited.

Bait Management Zone.

In Ontario, there are four Bait Management Zones (BMZ) that impact how baitfish and leeches can be moved, possessed, and used. The Great Lakes (including Manitoulin Island) and Ottawa River are not considered Biologically Significant Areas (BMZs) in Canada. Check out the bait for additional information.


There are 48 different types of fish that can be used as bait in Canada. Check out the bait for additional information.

Barbless hook.

A barbless hook is a type of hook that does not have any barbs or has barbs that are flattened against the shaft of the hook.

Catch and possession limits.

Catch and possession limits are rules that apply to the amount of fish or wildlife that you can catch and keep in Canada. These limits are in place to ensure the sustainability and conservation of our natural resources.

The catch limit refers to the maximum number of fish that you are permitted to catch and retain in a single day. This includes fish that are not immediately released, as well as any fish that you consume or give to others. Catch limits apply to each individual, and any fish given as a gift to someone else also count towards your catch limit, even if they are given to a member of your fishing group.

The possession limit refers to the maximum number of fish that you are permitted to have in your possession, whether they are in your hands, stored in a cold environment, transported, or located anywhere else. Possession limits are typically the same as the catch limit for one day unless stated otherwise. If you catch a fish after reaching the daily catch or possession limit for that species, you must release the fish right away, eh. If the limit is zero, anglers in Canada are only allowed to practice catch and release. This means that any fish caught must be released back into the water immediately.

Check stations.

Conservation officers conduct random “fish check stations” at various times throughout the year. At these stations, conservation officers gather data on fish caught and ensure that regulations are being adhered to in order to effectively manage our fisheries resources. Don’t forget to have all your licenses, equipment, and fish readily available for inspection.

Fishing tournaments and competitions.

Live-release boats for competitive fishing events require a license to transport the catches of multiple anglers and possess more fish than what an individual is allowed to have.

Conservation officers.

Conservation officers enforce fisheries regulations in the Province of Ontario. They have the authority to conduct inspections, make arrests, and carry out searches and seizures under the different laws they enforce, such as the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act and the Fisheries Act. When performing their duties, conservation officers may:

  • Stop and inspect a vehicle, boat, or aircraft.
  • Can you please provide me with questions that are relevant to the inspection?
  • Inspect buildings or other locations.
  • Need help to complete inspections.
  • trespass onto private property to carry out their responsibilities.
  • Search with a warrant.
  • Search without a warrant in situations that call for immediate action.
  • confiscate items related to a crime.
  • Arrest anyone they believe has committed, is committing, or is about to commit a crime.


For the purpose of this summary, crappie refers to both black crappie and white crappie, which are commonly found in Canada.


In certain bodies of water or for specific species, there are exceptions to the general rules set for each area. These include exceptions for certain species (such as size limits, catch limits, and fishing seasons), exceptions for specific bodies of water (such as a combination of species exceptions, protected fish areas, restrictions on fishing gear or bait), restrictions on bait, and protected fish areas.

Certain bodies of water are categorized together based on similar regulatory exceptions. These will typically be listed under the name of the largest or most important water body. If there are no exceptions mentioned, then the rules for the area apply.

Exporting fish.

When someone leaves Ontario, they are allowed to take only the specified limits of fish.

Fish sanctuaries are areas that are set aside to protect and preserve fish populations. These sanctuaries are important for maintaining healthy fish populations and

Fishing of any kind is not allowed in a fish sanctuary, eh. Certain bodies of water, or sections within them, are designated as fish sanctuaries for a specific duration of time. Fish sanctuaries in Canada may not always have visible signs indicating their presence. Sanctuary dates are inclusive: all dates, including the first and last dates mentioned in the summary, are closed to the public.

Fisheries Management Area or Area.

The province is divided into 20 Fisheries Management Zones (FMZs) that have regulations in place to determine seasons, limits, and size limits for commonly caught fish species.


A hook consists of a single-pointed or multiple-pointed hook on a regular shaft, but it does not include a snagger or spring gaff, eh. The number of hooks include any single-pointed or multiple-pointed hooks that are part of a lure, eh.

Hooks and lines.

A fisherman may use only one line unless otherwise stated in the regulations. In certain regions of the Great Lakes and for ice fishing in various locations, it is permissible to use two lines while fishing from a boat. A fishing line should not have more than four hooks attached.

Immediate release of fish.

Any fish that are caught unlawfully or are illegal to possess (such as during the closed season, prohibited size, or exceeding the catch and possession limits) must be released immediately at the place and time of capture, as per Canadian regulations. This includes fish that may be harmed during the act of catching them. This rule does not apply to invasive species (such as goby), which should be eradicated and not released back into any bodies of water.

Lead sinkers and jigs.

Using or having lead fishing sinkers or jigs in Canada’s National Parks and National Wildlife Areas is against the law.

Live holding containers.

If you happen to use a live holding box or impounding device, it is important to ensure that it is clearly marked with your name and address. The markings should be easily readable without the need to lift the box unless it is a part of or attached to a boat. Fish in holding boxes are included in your catch and keep or possession limits, eh. Always keep an eye on the fish you have; it is against the law to let fish go to waste.


A live is a compartment specifically designed to keep fish alive. It should be connected to or be a part of a boat, have a minimum volume of 46 liters (10 gallons) of water, allow for water exchange, and ensure continuous aeration when live fish are being kept in it. Livewells should be emptied and all contents, including live fish, should be removed before being transported overland, eh.


For the sake of this summary, muskellunge refers to muskellunge and the crossbreeds of muskellunge and northern pike.

Hunting and fishing seasons.

The dates for when fishing season starts and ends can differ depending on the type of fish and the specific region. Dates are inclusive: all dates, including the first and last dates mentioned in the summary, are either open or closed. It is against the law to try to catch fish during a closed season, even if you plan to release them afterward. Fish accidentally caught during the closed season must be promptly released back into the water. Unless stated otherwise, species that are not listed (such as rock bass) have a year-round open season for fishing.

Pacific salmon.

For the purpose of this summary, Pacific salmon include chinook salmon, coho salmon, and pink salmon.

Plant-based bait is a type of bait that is made from plant-based ingredients. It is commonly used by anglers and hunters to attract fish and

Bait made from one of the following:

  • Bait that is made entirely from plants (like corn).
  • Mainly made from plants (like boilies and doughballs), and must not: have any visible pieces of fish or animal parts, be flavored like fish or animals, or include eggs from poultry (unless they are used as a binding agent for ingredients).

Primary residence.

The place that someone feels most connected to in terms of where they currently live and where they expect to live in the future, as well as their daily activities. For better understanding, an individual can only have one main home. Check out the information for more details.

Size limits

All size limits refer to the total length, which is measured from the tip of the mouth with the jaws closed to the tip of the tail, with the tail fin lobes compressed to give the maximum length possible.

Sunfish, also known as mola mola, are fascinating creatures that can be found in Canadian waters

For the purpose of this summary, sunfish include pumpkinseed, bluegill, green sunfish, northern sunfish, orange-spotted sunfish, and their hybrids.

Units of measurement.

Provincial regulations in Canada use the metric system, which is the standard system of measurement used by the common public. Converting from imperial units to metric units can be done using the following conversion ratios:

  • 1 inch is equal to 2.54 centimetres.
  • 1 foot is equal to 0.305 meters.
  • 1 mile is equal to 1.609 kilometres.

General restrictions.

In Canada, it is illegal to:.

  • Do not bring any crayfish, salamanders, live fish, or leeches into Canada for use as bait. Also, do not transport any live or dead baitfish or leeches into or out of a Bait Management Zone (with some exceptions). Contact the Canada Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) or Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to confirm federal import rules related to bait (including earthworms).
  • To move live fish, except for baitfish, captured from Ontario waters or to introduce or replenish any live fish or eggs into Ontario’s waters, you must possess a special license to transport or stock fish.
  • Do not fish for or possess any species of fish that are listed as Endangered or Threatened under the provincial Endangered Species Act and/or federal Species at Risk Act.
  • Sell or purchase any fish caught for recreational purposes (including taxidermy mounts), crayfish, leeches, frogs, or fish eggs. Only individuals who possess commercial fishing or commercial bait licenses are permitted to sell the fish they catch.
  • You are not allowed to use a gaff, snare, snagger, or spear gun to catch fish or have a spring gaff, snagger, or spear gun, or a snare for fishing, within 30 meters of any body of water. A spear is allowed within 30 meters of any body of water only when it is being used in accordance with non-fishing methods of catching fish. A gaff, other than a spring gaff, can be used to help land fish caught legally. A spring gaff refers to any tool that utilizes a mechanical spring, apart from a fishing rod under tension, to help an angler set the hook.
  • Catch or keep a fish by piercing or hooking it with a hook through any part of the body except the mouth. Fish caught in this manner should be released right away, eh?
  • Take fish using any method other than angling, spearfishing, bow and arrow fishing, dip netting, seine netting, or using a baitfish trap. Check out alternative ways of catching fish and gathering bait for more information.
  • Please refrain from using artificial lights to attract fish, unless you are fishing for rainbow smelt, lake whitefish, or lake herring (cisco) using a dip net. Additionally, it is acceptable to use a light as part of a lure attached to a line for angling purposes.
  • Use dynamite or other explosives to catch or remove fish.
  • Do not fish within 25 meters of a pound net or cage where fish are being held for cultural purposes.
  • Do not fish within 23 meters downstream from the lower entrance to any fishway, obstruction, or leap.
  • Do not waste fish or let the meat go bad, if the fish is safe to eat for people.

Provincial possession limits for cannabis.

The rules for a particular area control how many fish you can catch and keep from that area. However, the provincial possession limits determine the maximum number of fish of a certain species that you can have in your possession, including storage, if they were caught from different areas. Please be aware that there are aggregate limits for trout and salmon (including splake) that also apply to the general public in Canada. Always make sure to review the regulations for the area where you are fishing to ensure that you are not surpassing the catch and possession limits set for that specific area. The possession limits set by the provinces are as follows:

  • Atlantic salmon: 1.
  • Aurora trout: 1.
  • Brook trout: 5.
  • Brown trout: 5.
  • Channel catfish: 12.
  • crappie: 30.
  • Lake trout: 3.
  • Lake whitefish: 25.
  • Largemouth or smallmouth bass combined: 6.
  • Muskellunge: 1.
  • Northern pike: 6.
  • Pacific salmon: 5.
  • Rainbow trout: 5. Eh?
  • Splake: 5.
  • Walleye or sauger combined: 6. Eh?
  • Yellow perch: 100.

Rules for capturing and keeping fish.

In Canada, daily catch limits typically apply to all fish that you keep and don’t release right away.

Fishermen fishing from a boat may catch, keep, and choose to release more walleye, northern pike, largemouth, or smallmouth bass than the daily limit, as long as:

  • The fish are kept in a live well with a mechanical aerator running constantly.
  • The fish must adhere to any size limits that are applicable.
  • Ensure that you do not exceed the daily catch and retain limits for walleye or northern pike when fishing with a sport or conservation fishing license.
  • A maximum of six largemouth and smallmouth bass (combined) are allowed to be kept at any given time for fish caught under a sport fishing license in Canada.
  • The catch and retain limits for largemouth and smallmouth bass (combined) under a conservation fishing license must not be exceeded when catching fish.

Fishermen are reminded to keep a close eye on the well-being of fish kept in a live well. Only fish that are in a condition where they will be able to survive should be released. Releasing a fish that will not survive and allowing the meat of that fish to go to waste is against the law in Canada. Any fish that are not released back into the water immediately is considered part of your catch and possession limit, eh?

Transporting sport fish in Canada.

It is against the law to keep fish without a permit or transport live fish over land, except for baitfish, without a permit in Canada. When transporting sportsfish overland in Canada, it is important to ensure that the fish are deceased and placed on ice. It is not recommended to transport them in a live well filled with water. Anglers should make sure they are transporting fish in accordance with the regulations, which are put in place to safeguard our fisheries resources. The fish that you catch and keep may be cleaned, but must be easily measurable at all times if they are from bodies of water where size limits exist unless the fish are:

  • being ready to eat right away.
  • prepared at a hotel for storage.
  • being transported on the water from a temporary place to stay overnight to your home and you are not involved in recreational fishing.
  • being transported by land.

Tips for packaging fish in Canada.

  1. All fish should be packaged in a way that allows for easy counting and identification, not just those that have catch limits.
  2. To make it easier to count fish, it is recommended to package each fish individually or arrange fillets in a clear freezer bag, spread out flat. Avoid freezing fillets in a container or as a large lump frozen together in bags.
  3. As Canadian anglers frequently transport or store different types of fish, it is their duty to make sure that each fillet of their catch can be readily identified. Make sure to keep a significant portion of skin intact on all fish fillets for identification purposes. Certain species, like lake whitefish or lake herring (also known as cisco), might need extra distinguishing characteristics, such as examining the head.
  4. Conservation officers may inspect your catch at any time. Always make sure you have your fish and your license readily available, and keep coolers of fish in a location where they can be easily inspected.
  5. If a conservation officer inspects fish caught through recreational fishing and you are transporting them inappropriately packaged, your catch may be taken for evidence. This could result in receiving a ticket, being fined, and/or having to attend court near the location of the inspection, which may be far from your residence.
  6. The pictures below show examples of fish that have been improperly packaged. In these cases, the fish is frozen together in a clump, making it difficult to separate and identify individual pieces. Additionally, the fillets do not have any skin attached.
  7. The pictures below show examples of fish that are packaged correctly for easy identification and counting. The fillets have the skin attached, and they are not frozen together in a big clump.


Individuals with valid recreational fishing licenses are permitted to catch and keep bullfrogs during the designated open season. To find information about the current hunting areas, dates for the season, and limits on what you can catch and possess, please refer to the Ontario Hunting Regulations Summary.

Ice fishing

Two lines can be used for ice fishing, except in a few specific bodies of water. You need to stay within 60 meters of any line or tip-up you’re using while ice fishing, and it’s important to always have a clear and unobstructed view of the lines being used. You cannot have any spring-loaded device that sets the hook within 30 meters of any body of water if you’re fishing.

Ice fishing shack registration.

Ice fishing huts need to be registered online if they are being used in the designated Zones, and they must be removed by the specified dates. Once registered, an ice hut can be used anywhere in Canada. Additional approvals may be needed for provincial parks and conservation reserves. Canadians only need to register once. If your ice shack already has a registration number, you don’t need to register it again. You don’t have to register an ice hut, which is a tent made of cloth or synthetic fabric if it has a base area of seven square meters or less when set up.

  • March 1 – Areas 17 and 20.
  • March 15 – Areas 14, 16, 18, 19, and 12 (south of Timiskaming Dam).
  • March 31 – Areas 9, 10, 11, 15, and 12 (north of Timiskaming Dam).
  • Removal dates and registration do not apply in Zones 1-8 and 13, eh.

Leaving your ice hut out after the ice breaks up is against the law according to the Public Lands Act, regardless of any registration and removal dates that may be in place. Ice fishing shelter registration numbers must be a minimum of 6.3 centimeters in height and should be prominently displayed on the exterior of the shelter.

Multiple lines for common carp

Well, let me tell you a thing or two about these fish. Common carp are a pretty common sight in our Canadian waters. They’re known for their distinctive appearance, with their large scales and a golden

Fishermen in Fisheries Management Zones 12 to 20 are allowed to use a maximum of three fishing lines when specifically targeting common carp. In order to use multiple lines, you must fulfill all of the following requirements:

  • Use baits that are made from plants or artificial corn.
  • When fishing from the shore, it is important to ensure that each fishing line you use is no more than 2 meters (6 feet) away from another line you are using.
  • When fishing from a vessel, like a boat, it is important to ensure that all lines are kept on board the vessel with you.

The following activities are prohibited when fishing with multiple lines for common carp in Canada:

  • Baits such as worms, leeches, or small fish.
  • artificial lures. That includes soft plastic lures, you know.

When targeting common carp with more than one line (up to three), all the restrictions mentioned above apply to every line that an angler is using. Any other fish species caught must be released immediately, as defined in the glossary.

Non-fishing methods of catching fish.

Residents of Ontario and Canada, as well as non-Canadian residents with a valid recreational fishing license, are allowed to fish using one dip net, one seine net, one spear, or a bow and arrow during the specified periods for each species. If the area is not specified below, then there is no hunting season.

for that particular species, eh?

Dip nets: should not exceed 183 centimeters on each side if angular, or 183 centimeters in diameter if circular.

Seine nets: should not exceed 10 meters in length and 2 meters in height.

Spears: cannot be used or held within 30 meters of the edge of any body of water, unless you are fishing for carp and white sucker using non-angling methods to catch fish.

Bow and arrow: includes all longbows, eh? Longbows are considered a weapon under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act.

Individuals who engage in fishing using a longbow and fail to handle or discharge it responsibly, thus posing a risk to the safety of others or causing damage to property, may be subject to penalties such as fines and/or imprisonment. Any injury that needs treatment from a doctor, caused by a firearm discharge while it was in possession for fishing purposes, must be reported to a conservation officer.

Crown land camping.

Most public land and protected areas in Ontario are accessible to the general public throughout the year for personal, temporary use, and there is no charge for this. Restrictions may be in place in certain areas, as indicated by the presence of signs or through land use planning or management guidelines. For more information, please refer to the Crown Land Use Policy Atlas or the planning webpages for Provincial parks and conservation reserves. Moreover, certain regions might have restricted travel zones in place to prevent forest fires. There may also be closed access roads or specific areas marked with signs to prohibit certain types of activities or travel.

Canadian residents

Canadians are allowed to camp on Crown land and Conservation Reserves without any charge for a maximum of 21 days on a single site within a year. For camping on Crown land or a conservation reserve, a resident of Canada refers to Canadian citizens as defined in the Citizenship Act (Canada) or individuals who have lived in Canada for at least seven months in the past year.

Non-residents of Canada.

Individuals who are not residents of Canada and are 18 years of age or older must obtain a permit in order to camp on Crown land located in Northern Ontario (north of the French and Mattawa rivers). Additionally, a permit is also required for camping in a conservation reserve anywhere in Ontario. Camping permits for non-residents on Crown land are priced at $9.35 plus tax per person per day. In addition to any local access restrictions, individuals who are not Canadian residents are also not allowed to camp in designated green zones in Northern Ontario at any time of year. For more information on buying a permit, a map of green zones, and other requirements for camping on Crown land as a non-Canadian resident, please visit the Recreational Activities on Crown land website.

Fishing regulations for individuals who are not Canadian residents.

People who are not Canadian residents and have fishing licenses are not allowed to catch more fish than the conservation catch and possession limits if they are camping on Crown land in Zones 2, 4, 6, and the part of Zone 5 that is outside of the Border Waters Area. Individuals who possess fishing licenses from outside of Canada and are camping on public land in the designated Border Waters Area of Zone 5 are required to adhere to the regulations specific to Zone 5. For more information about the boundaries of these waters and the fishing limits that apply, please get in touch with the nearest government office or visit Fisheries Management Zone 5.

There are also exceptions for the Winnipeg River (Zone 5) and the Sydney Lake Area (Zones 2 and 4) that affect fishers who are not residents of Canada – please refer to waterbody exceptions for Zones 2, 4, and 5.
