No matter the season, dress for the weather. Items can include warm, waterproof boots, layers of clothing (including a base layer that will wick sweat from the body), a toque or hat, mitts or waterproof gloves, and neckwarmer or scarf. If you are venturing into the backcountry, don’t forget those wilderness survival essentials (first aid kit, navigation, food, water, knife, fire starter, communication, and a backpack).
Your fishing guide will supply any of the specialized equipment needed for the sport, including fishing rods and lines, bait, ice augers, transportation to fishing spot, and shelter. In most cases, you will be required to have a license to fish and one can be supplied for your tour.
