    Default Lead sinkers and else made from lead for fishing in Ontario

    I have never fished in the past 20 years.

    I have all the old fishing gear,and the license.
    I am thinking slowly picking fishing up again(i was never a big fisherman anyway)

    I am wondering if the use of LEAD ,in any ways/shape and form is still allowed for fishing?

    Is there else NOT allowed.........regards

    Not to be a wise guy but in 20 years alot has changed.
    If you haven't already pick up or look up the current regulations and read cover to cover.
    Bait, # of rods allowed, and a host of other changes have been made once you have gone through 'em feel free to ask specific questions for claification.

    Rules for lead sinkers and jigs

    [COLOR=#1A1A1A]You can’t use lead fishing sinkers or jigs in Canada’s national parks and wildlife areas. When birds and other wildlife swallow them, they can get lead poisoning.
    [COLOR=#1A1A1A]Learn about the fishing rules in individual National Parks.

    As long as you're not fishing in "national" parks,lead is still allowed. Having said that,most of the folks I fish with (me included) made the transition long ago,especially,with the wide and inexpensive variety of non-toxic gear found in retailers all over the place.
