Quetico Park Resources

Quetico Park- Ontario fishing licenses are available on-line! To purchase Ontario fishing licenses you can click on the following link: https://www.ontario.ca/page/fishing

Fishing regulations that cover Quetico Park: http://files.ontario.ca/environment-and-energy/fishing/2017/2017_FMZ_5_English.pdf

Purchasing Ontario fishing licenses on-line has proven to be an easy alternative to attempting a purchase at Prairie Portage and with the notices from the Quetico Park office last year, on-line purchase appears to be the best option if entering through the south end of the Park.

Quetico Parks permits are also available on-line if you would like to reserve your own: https://reservations.ontarioparks.com/Quetico/Backcountry?Map
