Familiarize yourself with the regulations by reading Fish Management and Protection
or asking for a copy at the Visitor Centre. This document outlines the fishing regulations and the ‘catch and release’ zones in the park.
In order to manage our trout, Kejimkujik’s Resource Conservation staff have studied the trout population and monitored what anglers catch with creel censuses
. Tagging studies have shown that trout can travel widely within, and even outside, the park.
