The Lunge Lodge on the Upper French River

FMZ 11 Upper French River/Lake Nipissing Regulations - 2014

The waters of the Upper French River are considered part of Lake Nippissing, and are designated as Zone 11 with regard to the fishing regulations published by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.

You have a choice of licenses to choose from, the Sportsman License (S) allows for a greater possession limit of in-season species, while the Conservation License (C) is geared toward those who practice a catch & release approach.

It is important to note that there are some special regulations that do not apply to other areas of Ontario.

New for 2009 besides your regular fishing license you will be required to purchase ($9) an Outdoors Card to fish in Ontario (18 years of age and over).
After you fill out the application you will receive a temporary paper outdoors card (effective immediately). Your plastic Outdoors Card will be mailed to you by years end, and is valid for three calendar years.

From the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources:

Fishing season opening and closing dates vary depending on the species and the area. It is illegal to attempt to catch fish for which the season is closed, even if you are going to release them. Fish accidentally caught during the closed season must be immediately released back into the water. Closed seasons protect fish at vulnerable times of the year, especially when they are spawning or protecting their young.
