Lloydminster residents looking to go fishing in Saskatchewan this month can do so without buying a license. The province’s annual free fishing weekend is taking place on July 13 and 14.
The annual event does not apply to national parks and anyone looking to take fish out of the province requires a license. In a release on Wednesday, Environment Minister Dustin Duncan says residents and visitors can enjoy “some of the best freshwater fishing in the world” in Saskatchewan.
“Free fishing weekend is a great opportunity for families and visitors to make summer memories at one of our province’s many lakes.”
All fishing regulations including possession and size limits and gear restrictions will remain in effect during the free event. Free fishing weekend was first implemented 20 years ago to increase awareness about the angling opportunities in Saskatchewan and encourage resident involvement in sport fishing.
