Hi everyone, I was just wondering about the rules for ice fishing for trout. Can you just go to any lake that has trout and go ice fishing in it. Do you need a licence. Could you name some lakes or rivers.
in sj for trout, only the fisher lakes (not lily lake!!!) are open for ice fishing, and that's with the provincial ice fishing permit, which just jumped dramaticly in price. i would target smelt and hake instead - tidal waters, no permit required. still in sj county, hanson resivoir down by lepreaux is also under the provincial permit for trout.
