Angler Action Plan (Baitfish)

Not Just Fishing Logo



When foreign species invade our waters they can rapidly expand their range. They can then eat native species, or out-compete them for food and habitat. They can also introduce and spread disease.

1. Use bait lawfully
Crayfish must be used in same water body where caught and cannot be transported overland. Northern leopard frogs are the only species of frog that may be used as bait. Not all small fish or minnows are legal ‘baitfish.’ Learn about the 48 species that can be used as live as bait in Ontario at .

2. Know your fishing hole
It is prohibited to use bait in some sensitive rivers and lakes. Visit to learn about your favorite fishing spot.

3. Never dump your bait into the water It’s illegal to release your bait or dump the contents of your bait bucket anywhere near the water. Dispose your bait at least 30 m away from the shore.

4. Use local bait
Get your bait as close as possible to where you plan on fishing and reduce the risk of introducing a species that isn’t normally found in the local area.

5. Report all invaders
Call the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters’ Invading Species Hotline at 1-800-563-7711 to report an invasive species sighting. Or download the EDDMapS Ontario app to report an invader on the spot.

6. Stop the invasion
