2017-2019 fishing regulations released

The Province has released the new, updated guide to freshwater fishing rules and regulations.

Government has posted the 2017-2019 Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis on its fishing regulation website (http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/fw/fish/regulations/) and printed copies will soon be available at Front Counter B.C., Service B.C. and stores that sell fishing licences.

This synopsis is a comprehensive guide to the regulations, policies, and practices that guide freshwater fishing in B.C. The Province updates the synopsis every two years, and regularly posts updates online.

The synopsis also includes important angling-related articles including information on stopping the spread of invasive aquatic species, catch-and-release best practices, and tips on how to help keep aquatic ecosystems natural, intact and healthy.
