Deadlines to remove ice fishing shelters approaching

Deadlines for anglers to remove ice fishing shelters are coming up on March 15 for areas south of Highway 16, and March 31 to the north, says the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment.

Noting that spring weather can be unpredictable and lead to unstable ice conditions, environment staff advise that anglers remove their shelters before it becomes unsafe.

As well, fisher folk are to remove all litter and ensure that shelters are taken away as they cannot be left on the shore.

Further, they advise to be extremely cautious while travelling on ice. Slush, thermal cracks and pressure ridges are all indicators of unsafe ice conditions. Ice thickness and strength can vary considerably from area to area, so always check that conditions are safe.

More information about fishing in Saskatchewan is available online in the Anglers Guide.
