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 have been out the last 3 weekends without success.  Although I do know my boat and equipment are all in working order!  Water has stayed in the low to mid 50's during this period.  I have fished Balyntine, Francis, and Big Jefferson.   I have fished shallow, suspended, and deep.  Having fun and know I'll soon be in the zone!

      Tomorrows weather is looking nice, after that not so much.  The big boat is still in winter storage and BC's boat is getting a new transom.  So it might be put the dock in and work on the transom kinda weekend.

      So, opener is only two weeks away.  Who's going to make the trip to Cass and Kitchi?  And the big question, with this nice spring weather pattern we are experiencing.  Is it going to finally be a nice opener?
