To prevent over fishing and hazards to the water and the fish regulations are necessary.
In the German version of this web site I explained them a little bit because they are not available in the German language. Not everybody in German speaks English as I was told by Canadian officials!
I wanted to avoid that visitors to our province become disappointed when they learn too late that they can not realize some of their "smart" plans such as catching many fish, smoke them, take them back and finance the vacations by selling them in Germany.
I do not see any reason to re-invent the wheel by doing this for English speaking visitors. Please use the following link to see all essential information about fishing in Ontario:
