Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Environment is reminding anglers of the deadlines to remove ice fishing shelters.
For shelters south of Highway 16, the last day is March 15th, and for shelters north of the Highway, it’s March 31st.
The Ministry says all litter and shelters must be removed from the ice, and not be left on the shore. Abandoned shelters can pose an unnecessary risk to everyone.
They also remind anglers to be careful while traveling on ice, as slush, thermal cracks and pressure ridges are all signs of unsafe ice conditions.
