Laws and Regulations in Canada and/or Ontario may differ from your Home State.  The following Laws, Regulations and Camp Rules must be adhered to at all times.

The list is subject to error or change at any time. 

  1. Remember to buy your fishing license in Ear Falls (or anywhere in Ontario, Canada) before coming to our landing for pickup.   We do not sell Hunting or Fishing Licenses at Camp.

  2. Non-Resident Fishing Licenses are quite reasonably priced.  The 7-Day License is the most popular option.  Cost is $35.00 Canadian Money.  Full Season License is $55.00 Canadian.  Full Season Couple License is $80.00 Canadian.  The cost of a license for a child under 16 years of age is the same as an adult, but is an optional purchase.  If you choose not to purchase a license for a child they must be accompanied by a licensed adult and their fish count in that adult's limit.  

  3. When purchasing your Hunting or Fishing License, Request the Regulations Book.

  4. Limits:  Remember fish you have in the boat, plus the ones in the freezer, plus the ones you ate today count towards your limit.  Daily Limit and Possession Limit are one in the same.  Walleye: limit 4 of which 1 trophy 18+ inches; Northern: limit 4, all but one trophy must be under 27 1/2 inches.  Trophy minimum size is 35 1/2 inches; Small Mouth: limit 4; Muskie: limit 1.   If you need clarification on this, please ask.  Be sure to bring a tape measure.
