You can spend a lifetime fishing in Canada and still not experience a fraction of what that country has to offer. From distant mountain streams and rippling ocean waves to city lakes surrounded by skyscrapers, this country has it all.

You need to know:
Fishermen must purchase a fishing license, whether fresh or saltwater fishing. Don’t forget to buy a license valid in the province where you plan to fish. Additional stamps and permits may be required in some locations. Licenses can be purchased at fishing tackle, fishing camps or at gas stations.
Some fish are not always legal to catch and may be limited in size. The easiest way to comply with local regulations is to book one of the tours on offer, where a professional Canadian guide and fishing permit will be waiting for you.
