Good news for BC anglers: The 2015-17 Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis is here.

Produced by Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and Black Press, the Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis is now available both online and in print.

Published every two years as the go-to guide for all non-salmon sport fishing regulations in effect in freshwater in British Columbia, the synopsis is a valuable resource for anglers throughout the province.

“The Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis provides the public with a summary of the regulations and management practices the Province uses to ensure that freshwater fishing remains a sustainable and enjoyable pastime for all anglers in the province,” says Stephen MacIver, policy and regulations analyst for the Fish, Wildlife and Habitat Management branch of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.

Inside the 100-page publication, find provincial and regional regulations, boating information and informative feature articles, plus fish identification photos, definitions and more.

Also included is a list of major regulation changes for 2015-17, vital information for a province that boasts more than 20,000 lakes and 750,000 kilometres of streams, not to mention many thousands of avid anglers.

Find the 2015-17 Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis online at www.env.gov.bc.ca/fw/fish Print copies are available at Service BC centres and local angling licence vendors throughout B.C.

Gracing the cover of this year’s synopsis is a photo by Fernando Barbosa depicting two young anglers working together to land a big one on Bowron Lake.

For shutterbugs who want to be similarly immortalized, submissions are being accepted for the cover of the 2016-18 Hunting and Trapping Synopsis – e-mail photos relevant to hunting or trapping in B.C. to synopsiscoverphoto@gov.bc.ca by Oct. 1.
