Saskatchewan’s Free Fishing Weekend is July 13 and 14

Released on July 3, 2019

Saskatchewan’s annual summer free fishing weekend is just around the corner.  On July 13 and 14, residents and visitors to the province are welcome to fish in any of Saskatchewan’s public waters open to sport fishing without purchasing a fishing licence.

“Free fishing weekend is a great opportunity for families and visitors to make summer memories at one of our province’s many lakes,” Environment Minister Dustin Duncan said.  “And Saskatchewan offers some of the best freshwater fishing in the world.”

Anyone planning to take part in free fishing weekend should note that all other fishing regulations, including possession limits, gear restrictions and size limits on some lakes and rivers, remain in effect.

Free fishing weekend does not apply in national parks and anyone planning on taking fish out of the province must purchase a licence.

More information about fishing in Saskatchewan can be found in the 2019 Anglers’ Guide at www.saskatchewan.ca/fishing.

The first free fishing weekend in Saskatchewan was held in the summer of 1989 to encourage participation in sport fishing and increase public awareness about the value and diversity of angling opportunities in the province.

In 2015, the province held the first winter free fishing weekend.  Annually, approximately 250,000 people sport fish in Saskatchewan, including more than 50,000 out-of-province anglers.
