Saskatchewan’s annual summer free fishing weekend is tomorrow and Sunday. Since 1989 one weekend is designated each summer when residents and visitors may fish in any of Saskatchewan’s public waters open to sport fishing without purchasing a fishing licence.
Anyone planning to take advantage of the free fishing weekend is reminded that all other fishing regulations, including possession limits and reduced limits on some lakes and rivers remain in effect. Free fishing weekend does not apply in national parks and anyone taking fish out of the province must purchase a licence.
More information about fishing in Saskatchewan can be found in the 2017 Anglers Guide available where angling licences are sold or online at www.saskatchewan.ca/fishing.
