Don't non-residents require a guide for all salmon waters, and for greater than some short distance (800m?) from a public road/bridge for non-scheduled rivers?
I've been very interested in investigating the salmon fishing in Nfld. for a while, but the guide requirement has kind of put me off of the idea. I always get a guide for one or two days when I visit a new area, to learn about the waters, and contribute a little to the local economy, but I typically like to go it alone or fish with a close friend after that.
