Sorry everyone I tryed to do a search first before I posted this question.

What is needed (paper work) If I fish and ANCHOR in Canadian waters. For example walleye fishing in the St.Clair river. I know about the fishing lics. I was more worried about laws with dropping anchor but not touching LAND.

Well I made some phone calls. This is the information I recieved.

I called 1-888-CAN-PASS and spoke with Canandian Auth.

According to them. 1st.You call from a "Reporting Center" , which is a affiliated marina in the area, you are going to fish.

2nd. from there, they will ask you for the boats information, fishermen`s info. and location you are going to fish.

At this pont they will give you clearance to go anchore and fish "OR" they will instruct you to wait at the "Reporting Station" to be inspected and boarded by the authorities.

DOES ANYONE KNOW ANY DIFFRENT? or had a hassel in fishing canadian waters yet?

I have researched this issue closely. If you do not go ashore in Canada, you need not call CanPass. However, if you do go ashore, you are correct. Now you are faced with re-entering the USA. Only 2 ways to legally do so. You can go to a video phone, I believe there is one by the Ambassador Bridge. Or you must have a form I 68 for everyone on board. FYI.

the previous post is 100 percent correct. Also add anchoring is the same as going ashore. It is considered "landing". If you do not land, you dont have to report to Canadian Customs and subsequently you do not have to report back to US Customs upon re-entering
