Free Fishing Weekend Approaches
July 8 and 9 marks another Free Fishing Weekend in Saskatchewan. Since 1989, the province has designated one weekend every summer when residents and visitors may fish in any of Saskatchewan's public waters open to sport fishing without purchasing a fishing licence. You're reminded that during this weekend, 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.
Approximately 250,000 people sport fish in Saskatchewan, including more than 50,000 out-of-province anglers each year.
