The End of Ice Fishing? by concerned citizen Paul Hebert

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is proposing sweeping changes to Fisheries Management Zone 15 from Georgian Bay to Ottawa and south of North Bay to the Kawarthas. The changes include closing winter lake trout fishing and opening the season on May long weekend and again after Labour Day and shortening the seasons on other lakes.

There will be hugh slot sizes differences on trout with this proposal.

This will destroy our local economy and local businesses.

Review and comment by Tuesday, November 29. 2022 to the Environmental Registry of Ontario.

Please contact your local politician, councillors and mayor about your concerns.
