Information about the draws

Before and during the fishing season, there are two ways to obtain access fishing rights on limited access sectors. The pre season draw which usualy occurs during fall and in season, the 48 hours draws. That way, some Zecs Operators and Wildlife Reserves allocate a number of poles in parts of the rivers with limited access through raffles. The two main draws to obtain a right of access in an limited access sector are:

48 hours daily draw

(ex. : 48 hours = draw, 48 hours before the available fishing days).
