Canadian limits on Namakan?

4 posts in this topic

I received my Non-resident Canadian Sport fishing license in the mail along with their regulations book but I cannot determine from this exactly what the daily catch and possession limits are for Namakan. Does anyone know for sure what the rules are for the Canadian side of Namakan?

Thanks!

I don't have a current copy of their regs. but it should be covered under a border waters heading. Of course the type of lic. you purchased will also make a difference. Standard non-res. or conservation lic. Also, there should be a toll free number for you to call. Good luck. Old Sneller

From the 2005-2006 regulations which are still in force, see page 73. Namakan is in the section "Lake of the Woods and Remaining Lakes in Dryden and Fort Frances MNR Districts".

For a Non-Resident Sport License you can catch and retain in 1 day two walleye only one (1) greater than 46 cm (18.1 in.)with a possession limit of 4 where only one is greater than 46 cm (18.1 in)

For a Non-Resident Conservation License the Catch & Possession limit is two with only one greater than 46 cm (18.1 in.)

Remember that if you take a walleye over the 17 in. slot on the Canadian side of Namakan you must return to your campsite or resort by the most direct route and you may not fish in the US on the way. Also, on Namakan Canadian side a sauger = a walleye.

Good luck and remember no hazards are marked in Canada and there are lower unit biting rocks out there especially with the low water situation. Take care!

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
