Do not fish in federal parks on Free Family Fishing Weekend or you will be fined. Federal parks will have the word “National” in its name, for example Riding Mountain National Park.
From Saturday, Feb. 13, to Monday, Feb. 15, anglers may fish without a licence throughout the province, except in national parks where a federal angling licence is still required. Anglers may retain up to a conservation licence limit of fish, which includes four walleye/sauger, four northern pike, two smallmouth bass, one lake trout, one channel catfish and two stocked trout. Regular limits apply for those who already have a regular angling licence and all other angling regulations apply during this weekend, including regulations for individual waters. For more information on all provincial fishing regulations, refer to the 2020 Manitoba Anglers’ Guide at www.manitobafisheries.com.
