Management Zones and Special Regulations

Using Zone Regulation Information

Saskatchewan is divided into three management zones for angling regulation. All lakes intersected by the zone borders fall into the zone immediately north of the border. Look for the name of the waterbody you intend to fish on in the special regulation links below. If the waterbody is listed, you must follow general regulations, as well as the special regulations listed. General regulations apply to all unlisted provincial waters, while special regulations are specific to certain bodies of water.

In the special regulations, new regulations for a specific waterbody have the waterbody's name in red and an asterisk (*) beside the name of the waterbody. A number-letter combination after the waterbody name is the location on the map provided on the zone page.
