ICE FISHING SEASON IS ON THE HORIZON
Ice fishing season opens February 1! If you are heading out to enjoy some fishing you may wish to familiarize yourself with the current regulations/ guides from the 2015-2016 Angler’s Guide (complete copy can be found at http://www.nfl.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/NL/AG/anglersguide). Since the Indian Bay Watershed is considered a Special Trout Management Area, the possession limit is the daily bag limit (regardless of duration of stay you may have in the area).
