The Government of Saskatchewan is allowing residents and visitors to fish on any provincial body of water that has an open sport fishing season, without buying a fishing licence.

“Ice fishing is a favourite pastime for many Saskatchewan residents. Free Fishing Weekends are a great time for visitors or new anglers to give it a go — if they haven’t had the opportunity,” Environment Minister Warren Kaeding said.

All regulations apply during Free Fishing Weekend, including possession limits and reduced limits on some waterbodies. Those planning to transport fish out of the province must have a valid Saskatchewan angling licence.
