Ontario Fishing licence; two needed pieces of identification
Getting your Ontario Fishing Licence is a must
do each year if you are planning on fishing and are between the ages of
18 and 65.
The Ontario Canada Fishing regulations require adults to carry both and
outdoors card and one of two types of fishing license tags.
The Outdoors Card
The Ontario Resident Outdoors Card is primarily an identification card
much like a drivers license and is valid for a three year term. It must
be accompanied by your fishing tags to become a valid fishing license.
Ontario Fishing License Tags
There are two types of fishing licence tags; sport fishing tags and
conservation fishing tags.
Which should you buy? It depends on the type of fishing you want to do.
If you want to have full
catch and possession fishing privileges then you should
buy a Sport Fishing License tag.
If you want to perform live
release the majority of your fish then you should buy a
Conservation Fishing License tag. The possession limits are lower for
this type of tag.
