Saskatchewan Conservation Officers kept busy for two of the weekends this spring, May 18th and 19th, and May 25th and 26th, conducting fisheries compliance checks on anglers at the Regina Beach pier on Last Mountain Lake. 

In all, 168 anglers were given compliance checks, with a variety of violations uncovered, including those being over the limit on walleye and upper-sized walleye, using more than one line in open waters, and being more than 25 meters from a fishing line.

As a result of the inspections, officers issued 15 charges and seized 35 walleye. 

Regina Beach Pier was chosen due to the significant angling pressure and the history of non-compliance with anglers exceeding their limit. Conservation officers tend to receive a large number of calls every year to the Turn In Poachers and Polluters (TIPP) line regarding violations from the Regina Beach Pier.

Saskatchewan angling regulations set daily limits for the maximum amount and size of fish that can be caught and kept in most waters. Certain waterbodies will also have specific limits for that location or catch-and-release limits that have been established for certain fish species.

The best way to know your limit is to check the Saskatchewan Anglers Guide before heading out. For more information about angling in Saskatchewan and to download a copy of the Anglers Guide, visit:
