A free fishing weekend will take place tomorrow and Sunday in Saskatchewan. However anglers are asked to avoid all wildfire affected lakes and communities in northern Saskatchewan.
Although angling licences are not required during free fishing weekend for Saskatchewan residents and visitors all other fishing regulations remain in effect including possession limits. Free fishing weekend does not apply in national parks and anyone planning to take fish out of province must purchase a licence. You are also reminded to respect any fire ban in northern forests and parks.
Due to wildfire conditions in northern areas of the province an additional free fishing opportunity will be considered later this summer when wildfire conditions no long pose a significant threat and individuals have returned to their homes.
Information on fishing in Saskatchewan and specific catch limits can be found in the 2015 Angler’s Guide or online at www.saskatchewan.ca/fishing.
