They should allow people with scheduled and paid resort reservations buy licenses. No day tripers or last minute guys. Win win for resorts and fisherman, and reduces the number of people coming into the country.
Too much death & disease in the USA to open the border-hard words but true-see you next year maybe.

Guess I don't see the logic if they open the boarders but won't allow fishing.. guess time will tell. I sure hope this doesn't become political like it has in WA where it's being used to take away opportunity. I know allot of guys to the north are tired of us non Canadians making a dent in the northern resources.

Wonder how long destination resort's can stay afloat without the income from south of the border customers.

That's the $4,000,000 question- those operations are going to need seriously deep pockets to stay closed for a year with no revenue.
