SRMT Non-Tribal Member Fishing Regulations and Requirements

Apr 18, 2024

AKWESASNE – As the fishing season approaches from June 1st to October 10th, we want to ensure everyone enjoys our beautiful SRMT waters responsibly.

Non-Members wishing to fish in SRMT waters must obtain a valid SRMT Fishing permit. Fishing permits are required for all Non-Members accessing SRMT waters for fishing activities, including catch and release or sport fishing.

"SRMT jurisdiction" includes the Southern waters of the St. Lawrence River and its affluents, including the St. Regis River, Raquette River, Salmon River, and Grasse River. This also includes the areas where these waterways merge with the St. Lawrence River upstream within the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe's jurisdiction. A Season Permit is $50.00 and a 3-day permit is $25.00

In accordance with TCR-2023-42, individuals seeking to operate Charter Fishing Boats or act as Fishing Guides within the Tribe's waters must apply for a permit and comply with specified requirements and conditions within their registered jurisdiction. The fee for a Non-Member Guide is $250.00 per season.

For further details, please contact the Compliance Department at (518) 358-2273.
