Smalllmouth protection key to regulation changes.
By Luigi De Rose
Not every rule applies to all situations. The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry have taken anglers and environmental needs under consideration to modify the 2021 FMZ 20 bass fishing regulations. Both largemouth and smallmouth bass will now have an open season from January 1 to May 10. This pre-spawn or trophy bass season will not allow anglers to keep or kill any bass.
Largemouth bass will reopen on third Saturday of June which is consistently with this regions bass seasons. Smallmouth will open weeks later on the first Saturday of July. Postponing the smallmouth season ensure greater protection during the spawn.
