This is the weekend the province hopes you’ll hang the ‘Gone Fishin’ sign on your door.
Today and tomorrow, you can fish without a license.
“This weekend, we encourage Manitobans and visitors to our province to get out and enjoy the great outdoors and recreational fisheries free of charge,” said Sustainable Development Minister Cathy Cox. “This is a great opportunity to spend a weekend with family and friends and explore Manitoba’s abundant fisheries and parks.”
You can even keep what you catch, as long as you follow the limits laid out here.
Entrance to provincial parks is also free this weekend.
Summer family fishing weekends have been offered since 1992.
