What's New for 2019
Churchill River from Sluice Falls to Robertson Falls, including Barker, Devil, McNichol and Otter Lakes
- Walleye limit – 2
- Northern pike limit – 3
Exner, Little Raspberry, Nipawin and Suffern Lakes
- Stocked trout limit – 3 (only one may exceed 43 cm)
Five Mile Dam and Loch Leven:
- Stocked trout limit – 2 (only one may exceed 43 cm)
No longer mandatory on Blackstrap, Bradwell, Brightwater, Broderick, Dellwood, Moosomin and Zelma reservoirs, as well as Fishing, Miracle and Madge lakes. This change will provide greater consistency on the regulated use of barbless hooks in the southern management zone. Reduced limits on these waters remain in effect.
Canadian Armed Forces Veteran licence
In recognition of their service, Saskatchewan will provide free angling and hunting licences for veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces beginning in the 2019-20 season. For more information on this opportunity, including eligibility requirements, please visit saskatchewan.ca/fishing.
Proposed Changes for 2020
The following changes are proposed for the 2020-21 angling season:
- Prohibiting the collection and use of crayfish as bait to prevent the introduction and spread of invasive crayfish, which can pose a significant threat.
- Changing the special limits for Caddis and Fern lakes to align with the alternative management for stock trout waters programs. The proposed change is a limit of three stocked trout, with only one exceeding 43 cm. The use of barbless hooks will no longer be mandatory on Caddis Lake.
- Discontinuation of the Saskatchewan Catch and Release Certificate Program due to lack of participation.
These proposed changes are presented for your review and comment. Please send your comments by mail to:
