North York Fish Poacher Fined $1,500 For Over-Limit Of Lake Trout From Lake Joseph

A male has pleaded guilty to catching and retaining an over-limit of lake trout from Lake Joseph, resulting in a #1,500 fine.

Court heard that on April 8, 2018, conservation officers with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry were conducting inspections of sport fish anglers to ensure compliance with the Ontario Fishery Regulations. As part of these inspections, the male was observed angling through the ice. He had caught and retained six lake trout, four over the sport fish limit. The fish and his fishing equipment were permanently forfeited to the Crown.

The ministry  would like to remind anglers that fishing limits are in place to maintain a sustainable fishery so that anglers and other resource users can enjoy the resource in the future.
