The Angler’s Guide is published by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). It provides anglers with information on some of the regulations pertaining to salmon and trout angling in inland and coastal waters of Newfoundland and Labrador. It is recommended that anglers read the guide to become familiar with the regulations prior to angling. Regulatory changes to management measures such as season dates, bag limits, river closures, and licence fees may occur following publication. The Angler’s Guide is neither a legal document nor a complete collection of current applicable legislation; it is an abbreviated guide issued for the convenience of anglers. The Fisheries Act and Regulations, and the Wildlife Act and Regulations, should be consulted for interpreting and applying the law. If further clarification is required, please contact DFO or the provincial government offices.
