For those wanting a physical copy of the guide, they are available at regional offices of the Ministry of the Environment, most provincial park offices, and some retail outlets in early May.
“Saskatchewan is home to some of the best freshwater fishing in Canada,” Environment Minister Warren Cadding said in a statement on Monday.
“I know many people are excited to get out and enjoy one of Saskatchewan’s favorite pastimes. With the 2022-23 guide now available, we look forward to the start of a wonderful summer fishing season.” Huh.”
Additionally, the guide gives people important information about catch-and-release practices, preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species and how to measure your catch and properly package it for transport.

People are also reminded that fishermen 16 and older are required to purchase a fishing license in the province. It does not apply to Saskatchewan senior citizens 65 years of age and older.
Saskatchewan and Canadian resident Armed Forces veterans who were honorably discharged are eligible for a free angling license upon verification.
Angling licenses can be obtained 24 hours a day, seven days a week and stored on digital devices.
Residents are also reminded that free fishing weekends are scheduled from July 9 to 10 and February 18 to 20, 2023, for those wishing to fish without a license. However, all the rules still apply on those weekends.
More information can be found on the Government of Saskatchewan website.
