Yukon Fishing Regulations Summary 2014-15


Important Changes for 2014-15

There are several changes to the names of lakes and rivers in this year’s synopsis. A lake’s name may change following a decision by the Yukon Geographical Place Names Board. When a change happens, we reflect it in the synopsis so that it is up to date. The most up-to-date repository of Yukon Place Names is the Gazeteer of Yukon (see pages 2-4).

Of particular note, we have clarified the location and scope of groups of lakes like Snafu Lakes, Tarfu Lakes, and McLean Lakes – this gives everyone a clear understanding on where fishing regulations apply.

Finally, where a lake or river is not listed in the Gazeteer of Yukon or where there are multiple lakes with the same name, we have provided geographic coordinates so that you will know what lake the regulations refer to. Check this out on page 4.
