If you’ve been considering trying ice fishing, Family Day weekend in Saskatchewan is the perfect opportunity, gear requirements are relatively small and no license is required

During the province’s annual winter-free fishing weekend from 13 to 15 This February, residents and visitors to Saskatchewan waters who have an open sport fishing season can fish without purchasing a fishing license.It is important to note that the free fishing weekend is only available in provincial waters outside of the national parks

“Every year more than a quarter of a million anglers enjoy world-class fishing in Saskatchewan,” said Environment Secretary Warren Kaeding. “A free weekend fishing is a great time to enjoy the great outdoors and perhaps see ice fishing for the first time.”

During the free fishing weekend, all other regulations apply, including ownership restrictions and reduced restrictions on some lakes and rivers. According to provincial regulations, anyone wishing to transport fish out of the province must have a valid Saskatchewan fishing permit that weekend

Remember to observe all physical distancing restrictions and to put safety first when going out on the ice, always tell someone where you will be fishing and when you will be returning to dress for the weather before you leave Because frostbite can happen very quickly Be careful and pay attention to the thickness of the ice before driving on it Water does not freeze evenly and is unpredictable You need at least 10 cm of good ice to walk and at least 30 cm for driving light vehicles
