No Licence Required to Fish This Weekend

No Licence Required to Fish This Weekend

By Tyler Sutherland

The province has declared June 11 and 12 Family Fishing Weekend this year.

Anglers throughout Manitoba will be able to fish without a provincial licence, except in federal parks where a federal licence will still be required.

Those who fish will be allowed to keep up to a conservation limit of four walleye/sauger, four pike, two smallmouth bass, two stocked trout, one channel catfish and one lake trout. Limits for other species remain the same as those for a regular licence.

Despite not having to have a licence, anglers are still encouraged to review the 2011 Manitoba Anglers’ Guide at
