Government Announces Protocols for 2020 Angling Season
The Department of Fisheries and Land Resources is reminding anglers to follow public health guidelines for all COVID-19 alert levels during the upcoming salmon angling season.
The season opens June 1 and closes on October 7.
Salmon licences will still be available at retail vendors such as gas stations, convenience stores, and major chain stores. Anglers are not required to sign licences in-store upon purchase as usual but must sign their licences before going onto rivers for the licence to be valid.
Anglers who usually purchase licences from outdoor and sporting goods stores that are closed due to COVID-19 restrictions should check whether those stores offer contactless sales options. Online purchasing is not available.
