Can you tell me what are my various different options on where and how to obtain a Canadian fishing license?

I would like to know what all the possible options are.

Links and places where to go?

ABA,

As Wildbill said you can get one at lakeside. All you have to do is call them before Thursday and they can take a credit card number and will have your license at the store by Thursday afternoon. Or if you can't wait, another option I've used is go to Marine City take the ferry ride across and back and get your license on the way. If you walk onto the ferry there is no charge and if they aren't busy at the time you can sometimes get it without having to take the ride.

Good Luck,

JC

A few places on the Detroit River accessible by boat. If you are writing and article make sure you mention about CANPASS and declaring yourself legally upon entering Canada. You could also write about the I68 form.....but you may need a novel for that.


Duffs is one, I cant remember the others but I think there are three or four right on the river. I usually get mine from Lakeside, pay on Wednesday and pick it up on Thursday afternoon. This year I drove over to Windsor and by the time we got there, everything was closed except Canadian Tire. And it is NOT the closest Canadian Tire to the US.

You can call 1-800-667-1940. Give them a credit card # and it will come in the mail. That is what I did this year. That phone# comes right from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources website.

I got a form from "DOWD" earlier this year on this site. I filled the form out and faxed it in. In less than 5 days I had my liscense and paid no mark-up. Definitely the easiest way except for maybe the phone call mentioned above.

Then, when I am down fishing on opening weekend (US) I stop on the way out and pick up the Walpole liscense at lakeside - no waiting. I am then ready for the rest of the season!

Much easier than dealing with customs - CDN and US!

You can buy them on the car ferry in Marine City that takes you to Sombra Canada.
I always just walk on and buy it on the way over, don't get off the boat till you come back to the American side.

It took about 3 weeks to get mine when I used the 800#. And a buddy of mine experienced the same delay, so it wasn't just me.
