Manitoba Fishing Licence Requirements

Except for the persons listed below, everyone who fishes with a dip net, seines, minnow traps, spearfishes, or uses a bow must have their Manitoba Angling Licence on them at all times.

Regular and Conservation Licence

A Conservation Licence confers the same rights as a Regular Manitoba Fishing License, with the exception of scaled-down limits for several species: 4 walleye/sauger, 4 pikes, 1 lake trout, 1 channel catfish, 2 smallmouth bass, and 2 stocked trout. Other species' limits are unchanged.

Manitoba Resident Seniors Licence

A "Manitoba Resident Seniors Conservation Licence" is available to Manitobans over the age of 65 who have resided in the province for at least six months and are limited to fish only. Manitoba residents seeking a regular limit of fish must buy a resident license.

Resident, Canadian Resident, or Non-resident Licence

  • A resident is someone who has resided in Manitoba for the previous six months.
  • A Canadian resident is someone who has resided in another part of Canada for the preceding six months.
  • A non-resident is someone who has not resided in Manitoba or Canada for the previous six months.

Manitoba Fishing License Exemptions

The following people may angle without a license:

  • If a person has permanently lived in Manitoba for at least six months and is under the age of 16, he or she is entitled to a Regular Licence. All rights and privileges accorded with a Regular License are available to youngsters under the age of 16 in Manitoba, including their own individual limit on fish. Other criteria apply. When an Officer checks you, you must produce evidence of your age.
  • Residents or non-residents under the age of 16 from Canada or another country. The person must fish with a license holder, or someone exempt from licensing requirements, and their catch must be used to the limit of that individual. Residents or non-residents under the age of 16 who wish to keep a separate limit on their catches shall acquire a license.

National Parks

A Manitoba Fishing Licence does not entitle users to fish in National Parks. For information on fishing licenses and rules in National Parks, go to www.pc.gc.ca.
