Knowing The Rules When It Comes To Outfitting

Released on July 5, 2019


With angling season underway, the Government of Saskatchewan would like to remind anglers of provincial resource laws related to fishing to help ensure that anglers do not mistakenly violate The Outfitter and Guide Regulations.

In Saskatchewan, an outfitter is a person who organizes services for clients in connection with angling or hunting for a fee.  These include guiding services, equipment and accommodation, or any combination.

It is unlawful to carry out any business, occupation or take fish for financial gain without an outfitting or commercial fishing licence.  This includes remuneration, economic or material gain and business or employment benefit.  The same rules apply for hunting.

Renting your cabin or house can be considered outfitting if it is offered in conjunction with equipment or guiding for angling or hunting opportunities.  

Anyone convicted of outfitting without a licence could be subject to fines and loss of equipment.

Harvest allocations are in place to regulate licensed outfitters, sport anglers and the commercial fishing industry.  It is the responsibility of all anglers and commercial outfitters to follow the legislation in order to conserve Saskatchewan’s natural resources for future generations.

If you have any questions or information about outfitting, please contact the Ministry of Environment’s Inquiry Centre at 1-800-567-4224 (in North America) or email centre.inquiry@gov.sk.ca.
