It is human nature when information is missing to fill it in with the worse possible scenario they can come up with.  

Based on my research and a few phone calls, the following can be viewed as simple or complex.  Depends on what a person predisposition is.

1. Passport / or Passport ID

2. Documented Vaccinations history with the 3 approved the Canadian Site provides

3. Molecular/PCR covid screening completed within 72 hours of arrival at border

4. Completion and upload of documentation on "ArriveCan" app; can not be completed more than 72hrs from date of arrival.

5. Quarantine plan, This is basically your contact information of where you are staying in Canada, The Ontario website gives you specific questions to answer to assist in this answer.  Short story is you provide your camps address, and contact and correctly say that you will isolate should you be given and come up hot on a Random screening.

6. Random screening in the rare event your are chosen to be screened you will not be held at the border, if it subsequently comes back positive see item 5.  And yes you get a 14 day stay so if that remote possibility is a game changer for you don't roll the dice.

7. All licenses and outdoor cards are internet sales,  I tried calling around maybe you can find a place.  Good luck.  I am sure there are exceptions to every rule.

**If you are camping and will be out of contact I have no idea how a quarantine plan would apply or if it would be acceptable.  I would find out if this is where you fall in.

8. No / zero, live bait, frozen, salted zip nothing allowed this year. Crawlers no, Salted or frozen minnows no.

9. Right now on Aug 9th US citizens that meet the above will be allowed in.  There is NO restriction on US citizen returning from Canada.  There is restrictions on Non-US citizens at least until the 21st.

10.  Everything is subject to change.  get over it.

In the end nobody cares if you go or you don't go.  If you go good luck, if your not going no one cares what your reasons are.  If you go and have trouble you knew what your were getting into.   All the best.

I agree BA. It’s political and ridiculous. Canada and Mexico are the very last places I would go in today’s times. For different reasons of course. I personally don’t miss either one of them. I do have a little sympathy for those who love it and can’t go though.

This isn't rocket science it's just Canada

You can fly across the ocean to Italy and  Europe a month ago as long as you've been vaccinated

But the drive across the border to Canada you can't this is jackass

I'm with you fnh14. I can wait. Someday life will get back to normal and crossing the border will follow suit. Dad's gone, so it's just my brother and I now. I figure in 2 years it'll be back to business as usual. He and I are already booked for Erie next year. I'm in WI and he comes from Seattle. Both of us are working our tails off right now so no biggie.

I'm going to give it a shot (pun intended) on the 21st hopefully that will give them almost 2 weeks to work out the kinks, and we'll know exactly what we need to do to get in.   Until the 9th there is going to be a lot miss information out there.

Too many hoops to jump through for me, not worth it. What if you get tested at the border and it comes back positive while you are in the country? Then you have to quarantine in Canada for 14 days? Given how strict they were with their lockdowns I doubt they would let you fish while in "quarantine". Sounds like a waste of money and vacation time to me. 

Hopefully by next summer they have these kinks worked out. I'm sure guys will get in and back home just fine and have a great trip this year, but I am sure some will have headaches to deal with at the border.
