This weekend (July 6 & 7th) is Free Fishing Weekend in Alberta! This is a great opportunity to test out fishing with the kids this summer. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Free fishing weekend means that you do NOT need to purchase a fishing license to fish on waterbodies with open fishing seasons.
- This is not valid in National Parks.
- Sportfishing regulations still apply, this means catch limits, restrictions on keeping particular types of fish and size limits are all still applicable- visit the Alberta Guide to Sportfishing here for those details.
Did you know that Alberta has about 300 stocked waterbodies? For a list of those areas, visit My Wild Alberta a click on ‘Stocking Reports’!
Enjoy your weekend & happy fishing!
