The summer trouting season for Zone 1 (insular Newfoundland) opens Saturday, May 15, and will remain open to Sept. 7, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans announced today.
Bag limits and possession limits for insular Newfoundland remain unchanged: daily bag limit for trout (includes speckled trout, brown trout, rainbow and Ouananiche) is 12 trout or five pounds (2.27 kg) + 1 trout, round weight (whichever limit is reached first of all species combined). Possession limit is twice the daily bag limit.
Special management areas opening on Saturday, May 15, include Indian Bay Watershed, Northwest Brook Watershed and Middle Brook Watershed.
Management measures for these areas remain in place.
