Visitors Should Carefully Check Conditions and Monitor Closures Before Heading to Provincial Parks: Minister

Manitobans are encouraged to venture outside this weekend to enjoy free provincial park access and free family fishing Environment, Climate and Parks Minister Jeff Wharton announced today.

“Spanning more than four million hectares of land and water, Manitoba’s provincial parks have something for everyone,” said Wharton. “Whatever adventure piques your interest – whether it’s hiking, going for a picnic, mountain biking, using an accessible trail, canoeing or beyond – you are sure to find what you’re looking for in one of our incredible provincial parks.”

Vehicle permits are not required to visit provincial parks from Friday, June 10 through Sunday, June 12. However, regular fees still apply for provincial campgrounds.

Park visitors are advised to monitor provincial park conditions for closures and advisories due to flooding or weather conditions. Updated details are available at www.manitobaparks.com.

“Our government is also proud to continue offering the free family fishing weekend, which was first held in 1992,” said Wharton. “This weekend gives Manitobans and visitors the chance to experience world-class fishing on our amazing waterways.”

On June 11 and 12, anglers can fish without a licence provincewide, except in national parks where a federal fishing licence is still required.

Anglers participating in the free family fishing weekend are allowed to keep a conservation licence limit of fish, which includes four walleye or sauger, four northern pike, two smallmouth bass, one lake trout, one channel catfish and two stocked trout.

All other rules and regulations still apply as outlined in the 2022 Manitoba Anglers’ Guide , available at www.manitobafisheries.com.
