General Info and Limits for Wabatongushi Lake:

The difference between a regular and conservation license is in the possession limits. A regular license entitles you to possess 4 walleye and 6 northern, whereas a conservation only allows you 2 walleye and 2 northern. Children under 18 do not require a fishing license to fish in Ontario. There is no Senior Citizen discount for non-residents.
