Fishing Regulations

Pick up your copy of the Ontario Fishing Regulations at the lodge counter.

Catch Limit: The number of fish that you are allowed in possession- daily- this includes your fish in the freezer, in the fridge, on your stringer and also fish eaten each day are included in your daily catch limit. When travelling home you are only allowed to have your daily limit with you. If you aren't clear on this, please ask us.

Freezing Fish: Each fish packaged for the freezer must be wrapped 1 fish per package, frozen flat, with a large patch of skin (at least 2 inches) left on each fillet for identification purposes. Each fish must be labelled with fish specie (e.g. W for Walleye, N for Northern and L.T. for Lake Trout), have the cottage number (e.g. C#5) and also the first initial and last name. (E.G. if John Smith froze a walleye and he stayed in Cottage 3, his frozen fish would be labelled - W C#3 J. Smith No exceptions please.

Size Limits: Are the same for both sport fishing and conservation. To measure the fish accurately, measure from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail with the lobes compressed.

Bait Restrictions: Smelt are not allowed
