Saskatchewan’s annual Free Fishing Weekend takes place tomorrow and Sunday. Bob Skaftfeld from the Fisheries and Wildlife Department explains residents and visitors can fish without having to purchase a licence. He explained on this particular weekend those people who regularly require an angling licence don’t have to purchase one but all the other rules and regulations apply so they are encouraging people to pick up a copy of the angler’s guide which is also available on their web site and can be downloaded, review these and just be aware of all the rules and regulations.
Skaftfeld adds anyone planning to take fish out of the province must purchase a licence. Their website for fishing regulations is www.environment.gov.sk.ca.
