RCMP say the remains of a man who went missing while fishing in northern Saskatchewan last fall have been recovered.

Matthew Hamm of Hague was reported missing last September.

Police say his body was recovered in Weyakwin Lake on Wednesday by the Lloydminster Rescue Squad.

The Saskatchewan RCMP’s Search and Rescue and Underwater Recovery Team, Civil Air Search and Rescue Association and La Ronge Canadian Rangers also assisted in the search effort.
