Saskatchewan’s free winter fishing weekend runs Saturday through Monday. Saskatchewan residents and visitors can fish without a licence on any of the province’s public waters that have an open sport fishing season.
You’re advised to use caution and common sense when ice fishing. Test the ice thickness with a minimum of 10 centimeters of good ice required for walking and 30 centimeters for light vehicle travel. All other fishing regulations remain in effect for the free fishing weekend including possession limits and reduced limits on some lakes and rivers. As well free fishing weekend does not apply in national parks and anyone planning to take fish out of province must purchase a licence.
More information can be found in the Anglers Guide wherever fishing licences are sold or online at www.saskatchewan.ca/fishing.
