What is an access right?

The access right is a document which proves that the fisherman has permission to fish in a specific area of the river. The access right does not replace the requirement to hold for a provincial fishing permit for salmon. The access right should be presented, upon demand, to a protect wildlife officer or an assistant to the protection of wildlife or an area warden.

There is two (2) different types of fishing sectors on salmon rivers:

  • There are sectors where the access is not limited to a specific number of anglers, it is called « a limited access sector.
  • There are sectors where the access is limited to a specific number of anglers fishing, it is called « a limited access sector ».
