The province is waiving licence fees this weekend on ice fishing across Manitoba.

Anglers will be able to fish freely February 18-20, but conservation limits will apply and a federal licence will still be required to fish in national parks.

β€œIt is a great way to spend a winter day with family or friends and there are endless opportunities throughout our province to get a line in the water,” said Sustainable Development Minister Cathy Cox.

The province is also warning anglers to be check that ice conditions are safe before venturing out.
