Your guide to fishing in B.C.

British Columbia freshwater fishing enthusiasts have a new, up-to-date tool in their tackle box.

The B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and Black Press have produced the 2013-2015 Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis.

The Synopsis is printed every two years as a resource for local and visiting fishers to have on hand as they enjoy B.C.’s lakes and rivers. An electronic version will also be updated periodically if regulations change.

In addition, the synopsis will also be featured in a flip book format on the websites of all Black Press newspapers in B.C.

Inside, in addition to the most current freshwater fishing regulations, readers will find details about the popular Family Fishing Weekend, an annual event scheduled for Father’s Day weekend.

Timed to coincide with the licence-free weekends offered by both the federal and provincial governments, weekend events are organized in nearly 50 communities with help from the Family Fishing Society of BC.
