Types of Licenses
Ontario, Canada, offers two different types of fishing licenses. Sport fishing licenses are for anglers who want to catch and keep their fish. Conservation fishing licenses are for those who will release live most of the fish they catch.
You do not need a fishing license if you are a minor or senior, are mentally impaired, or a disabled Canadian resident. Aboriginal people may fish within their traditional or treaty areas without obtaining licenses.
Sport fishing license holders may possess a total of no more than five trout and one salmon per day. Conservation license holders may possess no more than two trout and one salmon per day.
Hooks and Lines
You may use only one line with no more than four hooks unless you're fishing from a boat or ice fishing, in which case two lines are permitted.
Live Holding Boxes
When using a live holding box, anglers must clearly label the box with their names and addresses. Labels must be visible without lifting the box.
