If you’ve always wanted to try ice fishing, then this is the long weekend to do so!

Once again, Manitoba residents and non-residents will be able to fish without a licence province-wide (expect in National Parks) from Saturday, February 19 to Monday, February 21, 2022.

“The free family fishing weekend makes it easier than ever for Manitobans to get hooked on the winter tradition of ice fishing,” said Agriculture and Resource Development Minister Blaine Pedersen. “Manitobans are encouraged to grab a rod and reel and safely head out onto the ice to catch a good time this weekend, while exploring the many fishing opportunities this province as to offer.”

This is a great opportunity for first time anglers to get hooked on fishing. The weather is going to be beautiful wall weekend long!
