Execellent Point, I usually don't keep anything so never thought about it.You probably know this , but I have run across other people who did not. You can fish but cannot retain, or target sports fish(not sure how you stop a particular type of fish from biting...). Figured I would rather repeat it than have someone lose their truck , boat etc. and get fined.
Yeah ,thanks it never hurts to repeat the lawYou probably know this , but I have run across other people who did not. You can fish but cannot retain, or target sports fish(not sure how you stop a particular type of fish from biting...). Figured I would rather repeat it than have someone lose their truck , boat etc. and get fined.
The only way they can get you is if you can easily identify the fish in the water before even catching any. (i.e. casting over salmon laying in a pool and running your fly/lure by their snouts repeatedly) or fishing with bait for sturgeon in the usual area during the closed time and repeatedly catching sturgeon. It could be hard to fight with the unintended catch story. I fished stripers catch and release for years before the season started. I never used bait then and always used heavy enough gear to bringSo in other words, don't be fishing with anything that looks like a salmon fly. And better yet, go barbless with everything, especially this time of year.
You really should've stopped fishing that pool after the first one. =-\I, myself caught 7 salmon and 1 grilse out of one pool in less than 1hr, not to mention some nice trout. The same salmon were still in that pool for the rest of the week and I stopped fishing there altogether, even though I was missing out on some nice trout that were in there.
Interesting. There sure are lots of rules open for interpretation. I like to fish tidal pools in creeks near my home (after trout season) I do this out of curiosity. I have hooked (barblessly) IBFSalmon by "mistake" at Black River, Emmerson and Gardner creeks. It looks to me like these Bay of Fundy fish are making a return. Although there some debate, I understand, about their genetics. I have watched them spawning in October. I'm wondering if DFO has any information about the Salmon populations in these creeks. It would be nice to see hook and release seasons on the Black River, Mispec river, and the Salmon rivers. Of course nobody wants to keep these endangered fish we would just like to enjoy angling a little later into the fall. PS there are salmon in mispec river. DFO should make it fly-fishing only, they don't stand a chance with unscrupulous people with spin rods.You really should've stopped fishing that pool after the first one. =-\
And yes, we are still lobbying the provincial government to not open the Hammond River until May 1st, to give the salmon a chance to get out of there safely. We'd even like to see the river fly fishing only from the train bridge up.
