Trout Season Opening in Insular Newfoundland

 

DFO advises that the 2019 summer trout season for Zone 1 (insular Newfoundland) opens on May 15, 2019, and will remain open until September 7, 2019.

 

Special trout management areas opening on June 1 include Southwest Pond, Otter Pond, Coaker’s Steady, Adies Lake, 10 Mile Lake (Northern Peninsula) and Round Lake (Northern Peninsula).

 

Bag limits and possession limits for insular Newfoundland remain the same: daily bag limit for trout (includes speckled trout, brown trout, rainbow trout and ouananiche) is 12 trout or 2.25 kg + 1 trout, round weight (which can be a combination of any of the species – speckled, brown, rainbow, ouananiche); possession limit is twice the daily bag limit.
