Are there different types of sector on rivers?

How do I fish in a limited access-sector?

In limited-access sectors, the number of anglers is limited in order to foster better fishing. When a sector is managed by a ZEC or a wildlife reserve, a random draw is held to determine who will be able to fish there. There are two types of draws:

  • preseason draws (ex.: November 1)
  • in-season draws (ex.: 48 heures)

If there are poles available after the daily draws, the manager of the territory can make available the pole for sale, according to a first come, first served.
