DATES: February 15–17, 2020 

Anglers may fish for all species without purchasing a licence. However, anglers wishing to retain landlocked salmon from 48 cm to 63 cm (fork length) require a licence with tags. Non-residents may fish without a guide or licence on these days. All current bag limits, closures and other restrictions are still in effect on Fish NB Days. Access to private waters, Crown Reserve waters and Crown Leases requires the appropriate licences and landowner’s permission. Individuals whose angling privileges have been revoked cannot fish anywhere in the province, including on Fish NB Days.

Do You need a Guide and License to Fish in NB?

image5

Non-resident anglers require a licensed guide when fishing for sea-run Atlantic salmon, or when angling for any species on Guide Required Waters after the designated date.  We recommend a guide regardless of where you are fishing.  


Angling licences must be properly signed and carried at all times while fishing. Anglers can only purchase one Class 1, 7, or 8 licence per season. Anglers 16 years of age and older require a provincial licence while angling in inland waters.
