Quetico Park Changes

Anglers who visit the Quetico Park next year will need to abide by a few new fishing rules.  The Quetico will no longer allow any live, dead, frozen, or salted bait to be used within the Park.  Only artificial lures will be allowed and hooks must be barbless or crimped back.  Some anglers fear this will hurt their fishing experience but the Park is quite confident the fish will be more than willing to bite on artificial bait.  The new artificial baits on the market do look quite convincing and get better every year so hopefully the success rate will not be impacted.  The Quetico Park is also recommending the use of lead free jigs and tackle so we now carry a variety of these items at Voyageur.  We’ll try to keep you posted on any other changes we hear of.
