Tidal Waters Sport Fishing Licence
2019 Licences should be available on April 1st
IMPORTANT: As they did for the 2018 season we expect that Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) will issue all Tidal Waters Sport Fishing (TWSF) licences electronically through the National Recreational Licensing System (NRLS). New Tidal Waters Sport Fishing Licences and Salmon Conservation Stamps for the 2019-2020 season should be available for purchase in April 1st 2019, but you may register now to familiarize yourself with the system. Once you register, you will also be able to replace a lost licence or renew future licences through NRLS.
As a result we no longer issue the Tidal Waters Sport Fishing licence to our guests. You will need to register online and purchase your licence prior to your arrival at the Lodge. Please remember that you do need to purchase the Salmon Conservation Stamp as part of your licence!
If you have any questions or problems pertaining to your licence, call DFO’s licensing help desk directly at 1-877-535-7307.
Pleasure Craft Operators Card & Boater Proficiency Requirements
Guests coming up to the lodge should note that anyone operating a boat in Canada must possess a Pleasure Craft Operator Card or attend a Boating Safety Orientation prior to leaving the dock. This of course does not apply to guests fishing with a guide. So all guests fishing unguided should be sure to bring their PCOC cards along if they have them.
In short, anyone planning to operate a boat during their stay at QCL must have either one of the following options:
Be in possession of a Pleasure Craft Operators Card (which is available online with a study guide and a test at a cost of about $40) The guest must be in possession of this PCOC card along with their fishing license while they are out in the boat.
Attend a boating safety orientation upon arrival at the lodge where the individual must initial each step of a prescribed form, verifying that they have been suitably instructed in the safe operation of a small watercraft. The completed form must be signed by a lodge representative and the guest must be in possession of the form along with their fishing licence while they are out in the boat.
