· One ziplock freezer bag for each fish you plan to take home. Fish must be flat in the bag with one square inch of skin showing.
· Paper towels - handy for lots of stuff.
Food and beverage
· Pack groceries in boxes or medium sized plastic containers or coolers - not bags.
· Don't bring full bags of flour, sugar, etc. - bring only what you need in a ziplock bag.
· Frozen veggies taste better and weigh less than canned goods.
· Instant mashed potatoes and Scalloped potatoes weigh less than whole potatoes
· Dry soup mixes rather than canned
· Coffee creamer and powdered milk to supplement fresh milk
· We recommend that you prepare meals such as chili, stew etc. and bring frozen in freezer bags. It saves you cooking time that could be used fishing and you don't have empty containers to take back home.

WHAT EVERY PARENT SHOULD KNOW IF HIS/HER CHILD IS TRAVELING TO CANADA WITH A FRIEND OR RELATIVE
A child ( anyone under the age of 18 years ) should always travel with the following documentation:
1. Proof of citizenship: eg.) Birth Certificate or passport,
2. A notarized letter from his/her legal guardian containing:
- authorization for the child to travel with another person and to be outside the country
- the name and telephone number of the child’s legal guardian
- the child's destination in Canada
- the period of time the child will be in Canada.
Persons who are separated or divorced should keep legal documents handy regarding custody rights. When traveling in a group of several vehicles, parents and children should arrive at the border in the same vehicle.
An examining officer at the Canadian border must be satisfied that the legal guardian has given permission for the child to be in the company of the care-giver, and must always exercise caution to protect the welfare of the child.
For adults, passports ARE NEEDED to come fishing or hunting from the United States.
