REGULATIONS AND FISHING AREAS
To fish in Northern Quebec, you have to comply with the Act respecting hunting and fishing rights in the James Bay and New Québec territories. This includes to respect catergory I, II and III lands.
CATEROGY I, II AND III LANDS
Category I and II lands are reserved for First Nations use. To hunt and fish, you need to obtain the necessary authorizations from the relevant band council and respect the conditions.
Category III lands are as elsewhere in Quebec; hunting and fishing activities are allowed. With one exception! You cannot hunt or trap fur-bearing animals. In addition, some species of fish such as whitefish, are reserved for natives. North of the 52nd parallel, non-residents of Quebec must use the services of an outfitter to hunt and fish.
