Saskatchewan's Free Fishing Weekend is July 13 and 14

Released on July 2, 2024

Saskatchewan's summer Free Fishing Weekend is back on July 13-14, and it's the perfect time for Saskatchewan residents and visitors alike to drop a line and give angling a try, no license required. 

"Saskatchewan is known for its world-class sportfishing," Environment Minister Christine Tell said. "Free Fishing Weekend is a great time for those new to angling to join the fun and discover what our province has to offer."

During the weekend, anglers can fish without a license on any public waters open to sport fishing. Important things to remember: Free Fishing Weekend does not apply in national parks, anyone planning on taking fish out of the province must purchase a license, and all other fishing regulations, including limits, still apply. For more information, visit:

Free Fishing Weekend began in the summer of 1989 to increase public awareness about the diverse angling opportunities in the province. A winter Free Fishing Weekend was added in 2015. More than 250,000 people sport fish in Saskatchewan each year.
