People across Manitoba won’t let a few showers keep them out of the water for the annual free family fishing weekend.
Anglers can cast a line without a licence on Saturday and Sunday.
“This weekend, we encourage Manitobans and visitors to our province to get out and enjoy the great outdoors and recreational fisheries free of charge,” Cathy Cox, sustainable development minister, said in a release. “This is a great opportunity to spend a weekend with family and friends and explore Manitoba’s abundant fisheries and parks.”
Access to provincial parks will also be free and people can catch a conservation licence limit of fish, which varies by species.
It does not apply to national parks where a federal licence is required.
The free fishing weekends have been offered in Manitoba since 1992.
