FISHING INFORMATION
VWP is an authorized issuer of fishing licenses for MNR.

Canoeing is the main attraction in Quetico Park and its mechanical ban provides clean, deep waters for the many fish species to grow in abundance. The fishing opportunities within Quetico Park are truly world class.

VWP emphasizes eco-friendly practices like the importance of catch and release and the purchase of a conservation license that allows you to catch fish and have delicious fish meals.

  • Guests can purchase their licenses through us upon their arrival or they can purchase them in advance on-line: https://www.ontario.ca/page/fishing
  • Remember that the purchasing of the license is a two step process. An outdoor card and the license have to be purchased. Some guests will already have an outdoor card that can be renewed so they only have to purchase the license.
  • Live Bait is prohibited in Quetico Park, only artificial bait is allowed.
  • Use of barbless hooks within Quetico Provincial Park.
  • There are fish lengths and quota requirement for each species in the park. VWP can provide a copy of these requirements upon your arrival. Please remember that these requirements are subject to change. For updates please refer to the Provincial Fishing Regulation.
  • Remember that children under 18 may fish without a license but must be under the supervision of an adult with a license. If the children want a possession limit then they have to purchase a license.
