border pass

Recommended Posts

Do we need a border pass to fish Rainy River in the spring? We have always bought one but when I looked on your website it didn't say anything about Rainy River. Something about pigeon river.. We have always bought it, but when they check us they only ask for the canada liscense.

If you plan to fish the Ontario side of the Rainy River you will be required to have a Remote Border Pass. These are now a 2-year pass upon purchase. Without this pass, even if you are licensed to fish Ontario waters, you would be in violation with a minimum fine of $100.

The webite we link to gives you the information on Remote Border Passes and it covers the border waters, including Rainy River. It is a large area of border water. It covers Pigeon River all the way through Lake of the Woods.

Information from their website states:

Are you arriving in a remote area? If you are a Canadian or U.S. citizen, you may qualify for the CANPASS -- Remote Area Border Crossing (RABC) permit. This joint initiative of Citizenship and Immigration Canada and Revenue Canada allows the bearer to cross into Canada in certain remote areas without reporting to a port of entry."

Hope this helps.
