    Question about Non-Resident Under 16 Fishing Licence

    I would like confirmation on my interpretation of the fishing regulations.

    I have a German student living with me until June and he is under 16, from what I can tell he does not need a license to fish if he is with me (I have a licence) and the fish he catches would go against my limit. If he was to purchase a licence then we could could keep up to our limit.

    I would appreciate your comments.

    freshwater regs state

    IF YOU ARE UNDER 16 AND NOT A
    RESIDENT OF B.C.::
    You do not require any licence or stamp to
    sport fish, but you must be accompanied by
    a person 16 years or older who holds the
    appropriate licences and stamps.



    Any fish you keep must be counted as
    part of the catch and possession of your
    accompanying licence holder.

    If you want to catch and keep your own
    quota of fish, you must buy a licence and
    any necessary supplementary licences and
    stamps

    So to not have his catch go against your limit, and him being a non-resident alien, it would cost, $80 for an annual licence. plus any tags, ie salmon and steelhead. $50 for and 8 day licence an $20 for a one day licence.
    I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.
