Fishing Rods
« on: June 17, 2011, 02:54:28 PM »
Just a quick questions and im pretty sure its a stupid question but its better to be safe than sorry.
When fishing open water i know that you are only able to have one line in the water at a time.
but can you have an extra rod down by the water with you as long as you are only using one at a time?

You can have as many rods as you want on the bank / shore as long as only one line is in the water.

I would say yes as long as you are not using it.Many times I'll take 3 or 4 rods in the boat with me and was never questioned about it by the fish cops.

Like the others have said, you're fine bringing an extra rod down with you, just gotta make sure that you only ever have one line in the water. 

Most times when I'm down at the river if I'm at a spot that requires a hike I'll have at least 2 rods with me...usually one for bait and one for tossing hardware. :)
Just puttin' it out there...

so you're only allowed to fish one rod at a time from shore. how about from a boat?

in BC, if you're alone in a boat, you can fish two rods at time. otherwise it's one rod per person.

i haven't looked at this in the AB regs since i don't have a boat with me. i'll have to check.

(the AB regs are really screwy to read compared to the BC regs.  :P  ;D )

Only one rod per person unless angling through the ice.

And the only reason you find ours hard to read is because they are straight forward unlike the BC regs which run you in circles till you get a headache then the CO pops out and gives you a ticket cause you crossed your eyes!  :o  ;D
