The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources has changed a few fishing regulation effective January 1, 2014.  Woman River Camp is located in Zone 4.  We will see the following fishing regulations change:

  • The size-based regulation for lake trout has been extended to the entire open season.

Follow the link to view the Ontario Recreational Fishing Regulation Summary 2014.  We suggest looking at it before your trip.  Like all governments, ours has had to make some cuts and one cut we see is less printing of paper copies of the fishing regulations summary.

Be sure to check with your outfitter for fishing regulation changes in their zone.
