General limits apply to most Saskatchewan public waters. However, some waters are managed with special regulations that further restrict angler harvest or activity. These exceptions to the general regulations must be complied with when fishing any of the listed waters.
Limit refers to the maximum number and size of fish you are allowed to retain or have in your possession. Anglers may possess no more than one limit of each fish species at any time. This includes fish that are eaten or given away for that particular day, as well as all fish that are at your camp, being transported by or for you, or fish that are in storage.
To determine fish length, measure the fish with its tail pinched.
|Arctic grayling||2||Only one may exceed 35 cm|
|Lake trout||3||Only one may exceed 65 cm|
|Northern pike||5||Only one may exceed 75 cm|
|Stocked trout (brook, brown,
rainbow, splake, and tiger trout)
|5||All specimens combined|
|Walleye/sauger/saugete||4||Only one may exceed 55 cm|
Note: When large numbers of fish are caught and released, anglers should voluntarily limit their overall catch. If catch is not limited, anglers can kill in excess of their daily limit. Research has shown that fish may die after being released for a variety of reasons, even if they appear healthy upon release. Even with careful handling, up to 10 per cent of released fish die afterwards. To estimate delayed mortality, count one fish killed for every 10 fish released. This mortality combined with the number of fish kept should not exceed your daily limit for a particular species, and anglers should consider stopping their fishing activity, or effort should be diverted to another species.
