Yes you can fish in Canadian waters as long as you DO NOT anchordown and dont tie up or hang on to another boat that is anchored in Canadian waters. As long as your trolling,drifting,or floating without anchoring your o.k. Obviously you cant port or dock there. I came very close to being a felon myself. I thank God EVERY DAY that it worked out to a misdemeanor. Keep your chin up ....we all make mistakes.

I know they wont let you over the border if you have a dui ...my buddy has more than three possesion charges and never gets stopped or asked about it.....but he was in the same car as his brother the dui guy and got turned around.

I would be careful on that advise you have been given...I am a canuck and we have the same rules as you yanks...you can not even be in the across the border in our water without calling in first if they decide to push it. Our customs people may be alot friendlier than yours but they are now armed. For the most part they and do not like anyone on this side without calling it in first.

This is the type of discussion that will have 50 different interpretations on what might, can ,or will happen if you do not call first when entering Canadian waters without landing or docking or anchoring. Be safe and call first i guess. I belong to the lake st clair walleye association and i have not talked to anyone who calls in if they are trollin thru. Thats not to say they are right im just saying im unaware of any problems as long as you dont dock/anchor. Obviously you must have proper license's and i.d.

With all respect to those that have responded, never take an answer about an issue like this from someone on the internet that you don't know. The last thing anyone needs is to be getting cuffed saying "Well, yeah but this guy on this website said I could...."

Go straight to the source and call the US Customs and Border Patrol offices in either Port Huron or Detroit. Search google to get the phone numbers of the respective offices. It might take a couple of calls, or getting switched from one extension or the other, but you'll get your answer from the RIGHT people. I've called them before on different issues regarding border crossing and found them pretty easy to deal with.

Pootein, Poutine or Protein? I'll bet you'll get lots of protein shakes....and not the good kind. Why would you take the word of anyone on here? And while I'm at it, is it worth the price to pay for a few fish?

I'm not a big poster on sites like this but am an avid fisherman and love to read the fishing reports. You've made a good choice. I work for DHS and it's not the U.S. authorities (CBP) you want to contact but the Canadian's (See Below). The United States cannot deny return entry of a properly documented US citizen back into the US.
