An official from Saskatchewan Environment is advising northern anglers to figure out ahead of time the number of fish they can pull from each lake.


The start of the season gets underway on May 25th for lakes in what the province terms the Northern Zone, while the Central Zone opens up this Saturday.


Saskatchewan Environment fishery specialist Peter Ashcroft says anglers are advised to contact his department if they don¹t know the limits that have been set for this year.


He says the changes include a limit of one walleye per angler for Emmeline Lake and a three-walleye limit in Dillon, Churchill Lake and Lac Ile-a-la-Crosse.


Ashcroft says there have been many other tweaks made to limits this season, and members of the public with questions can contact Saskatchewan Environment for more details.
