The recreational angling season officially opens on May 15 in Manitoba’s southern region, and May 22 in the northwest and north central regions. The northeast region remains open to angling year round.
The 2020-2021 angling season officially closes at midnight on April 4 in the southern division, and April 30 in the northwest and north central divisions.
Last spring Manitoba introduced a new, online service for the sale of outdoor licences and permits including angling licences. All anglers are required to obtain an angling licence to fish in Manitoba, unless exempt.
Angling licences are now available online 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can be immediately purchased and printed at home. For more information and to purchase an angling licence, visit www.manitobaelicensing.ca.
In addition, 20 fisheries, forestry, and wildlife applications have been added to the e-licensing portal and will also be available beginning today. Spring hunting licenses are also available online now and park vehicle passes will be available in early April.
If any licence or permit was purchased last year, sign into the online account using the Customer ID Number (CID#) and password. An online account will be needed to be created for all new online licence or permit purchases.
