Fishing regulations for every Canadian province and territory

Fishing regulations across Canada

Before hitting the water, always check the regs latest local regs

The good news is that provincial fishing regulations are fairly stable across Canada. That said, important considerations such season openings and closings, catch limits and slot limits can change from year to year. So it’s very important for anglers—both local and visiting—to consult the rules every season, and for every new body of water fished.

Canadian freshwater fishing regs are set by provinces, but regulations in saltwater (and in national parks) are set by the federal government. Follow the links below to find out more.

Stay safe, stay legal and good luck out there!
