No licence? No problem. Fishers will have a chance to drop a line for free this weekend in both Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

Both provinces will allow licence-free fishing from Feb. 15-17.

All normal regulations will still have to be followed during licence-free fishing. For example, anglers are not allowed to use barbed hooks in either province and provincial fishing limits will be in effect in both Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

Since anglers won’t need a licence in both provinces, the weekend can be a great chance for fishers to check out some new fishing spots in their neighbouring province.

Manitoba and Saskatchewan will have licence-free weekends later this year in the summer. Last year, each province held their respective weekends at different times.

A National Park fishing permit is still be required to fish in Canadian National Parks during free weekends.
