Last July Canada passed a law making it easier for anglers to enter Canadian waters and go fishing. In years past anglers had to call Canadian Customs upon entering Canadian waters. Here’s what the new law reads:
If you are visiting Canada, you are not required to report to the CBSA if you:
- Do not land on Canadian soil and do not ANCHOR, moor or make contact with another conveyance while in Canadian waters, and
- Do not embark or disembark people or goods in Canada

Upon re-entering U.S. waters You MUST call the U.S. Customs at 1-800-562-5943
