"Whether you are new to the sport or an avid angler, Free Fishing Weekend is a great opportunity to pick up a fishing rod," Environment Minister Dana Skoropad said. "In Saskatchewan, we are fortunate to have some of the best freshwater fishing in our own backyard."

Every year, more than a quarter of a million anglers take to Saskatchewan's waters to sport fish. There are nearly 70 species of fish native to Saskatchewan, including 21 different sport fishing species, such as walleye, pike and trout. If you choose to join the fun, be sure to check out the Saskatchewan Anglers Guide before heading out.
