Management Zones and Special Regulations

Using Zone Regulation Information

Saskatchewan is divided into three management zones for angling regulation. A number-letter combination after the water's name corresponds to the map location on the zone page. All lakes intersected by the zone borders fall into the zone immediately north of the border.

The waterbodies listed below have special, individual regulations which further restrict angler use above and beyond the general regulations. These special regulations are specific for each listed waterbody and must be complied with when fishing those waters. New regulations for a specific waterbody have the waterbody's name in the red along with an asterisk (*).
