Planning Your Trip
Rules and Regulations
With Warrington and Mantricia lakes bordering Ontario and Manitoba, anglers are required to have both fishing licenses – Manitoba regulations apply and only Manitoba limits can be taken. While fishing Hornell, Little Hornell and Keygo Lakes, only a Ontario license is required. Ontario regulations and limits apply for these lakes.
Warrington and Mantricia lakes are high management trophy lakes. the limits are: four walleye up to 22 inches long, and four northern pike up to 30 inches long.
In high management waters all walleye over 22 inches and northern pike over 30 inches must be released.
Regulations do NOT permit the use of live minnows or smelt. Frozen or preserved bait fish may be used. Leeches and night crawlers (dew worms) may be used. Barbed hooks are NOT allowed on Warrington and Mantricia Lakes, nor are necessary. This does not apply to all the lures you may have with you – only the lures you use. You can file off or simply crimp down the barbs with pliers.
NO open fires are allowed in Manitoba during fire season – April 1 to November 15
Manitoba fishing licences can be purchased at our air base the morning you fly out (Cash only)
Ontario fishing licences are available to purchase online or at many sport stores and gas stations.
