Fishing periods, limits and exceptions

For fishing periods, limits and exceptions for the site where you want to fish, use the interactive map or search filters below.

Using the search tool

Use the search filters to target the fishing zone and the body of water where you want to fish (to know your fishing zone, consult the interactive map).

For information on current fishing periods, limits and exceptions:

  1. Select the fishing zone.
  2. Check whether the body of water you are searching for is on the "Bodies of Water – Regulatory Exceptions" list. If not, the zone rules will apply.
  3. Select the species you wish to fish for.

You can also narrow the search results to the rules currently in force, by checking the box provided for this purpose.

If the body of water you are looking for is not on the proposed list, it is because the applicable rules are the same as those of the zone.

You must also consult the "News" section to see if any regulatory changes made during the season affect your body of water.

IMPORTANT: catch limits and fishing periods that apply in wildlife territories may differ from those mentioned here. In these cases, you will be informed on the spot.
