Rules and Regulations
Non-residents are required to hire a guide or an outfitter to fish inland waters in Newfoundland and Labrador. After all, they know this place like the backs of their hands – and can show you where and how to land trophy fish.
Licence Requirements for Non-Residents
All non-residents of Newfoundland and Labrador require an angling licence. When using an outfitter, they will supply the licence as part of the package. When using a guide only, you may or may not have to get your own licence. Use the Angler's Guide for information on obtaining licences, scheduled rivers, daily and season bag limits, as well as other angling requirements.
Angling in National Parks
Special licences are required to fish inland waters in our National Parks. These may be obtained from park administrative offices. Anglers should check with park officials on regulations that apply within National Parks – Gros Morne National Park, Terra Nova National Park, and Torngat Mountains National Park.
