You don't need a passport, You will need a drivers lic. to get your CA fishing lic.

Bring a copy of your birth cert. to get back into the us.

What is the new date for mandatory passport required for drive in to Canada?

I did hear Feb 09, is this correct?

If so, than we better get on it if we lack one, because it can take up to 6 weeks to get back.

Thanks,

You don't need a passport for Americans to go to Canada and there is no talk of changing that regulation .

You will need a passport to go to America soon !

You should rephrase your question !

I am sure there soon will be, the start date is the only question. The border crossing officers this fall said it was due sometime near the February/March.

If they dropped it completely..Kewl...but I don't think they did.

What was slated is you need either the full blue book passport, or the new card good for the Mexican border, Canada, and the Caribbean. The Card is all that is required for drive in...blue book for all fly in's, I thought I seen on the US Gov web site.

The implementation date was all that was up in the air last I seen.

Ed,

I think you missed the question, it was for getting into Canada. You don't need anything other than a drivers lic. to get into Canada.

Copied from the other passport topic.

From travel.state.gov

ALL PERSONS traveling by air outside of the United States are required to present a passport or other valid travel document to enter or re-enter the United States.

LAND AND SEA TRAVEL

The following summarizes information available on the Department of Homeland Security’s HSOforum.

* CURRENTLY:

U.S. citizens need to present either (a) a passport, passport card (scheduled to be in full production beginning in July 2008), or WHTI-compliant document; or (B) a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license, along with proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate.

* LATER:

On June 1, 2009, the U.S. government will implement the full requirements of the land and sea phase of WHTI. The proposed rules require most U.S. citizens entering the United States at sea or land ports of entry to have a passport, passport card, or WHTI-compliant document.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
