Along with the sizzling summer temperatures, there will be another incentive to head to the lake this weekend with it being Free Fishing Weekend (July 13 &14) in Saskatchewan. 

Residents and visitors of the province are welcome to drop a line and give angling a try, no license required. 

During the weekend, anglers can fish without a license on any public waters open to sport fishing. 

An important reminder that the Free Fishing Weekend doesn’t apply to lakes within a National Park.  

Free Fishing Weekend began in the summer of 1989 to increase public awareness about the diverse angling opportunities in Saskatchewan.  

According to the Saskatchewan Government Over 250,000 people take part in fishing activities each year in the province.
