Despite a recent cold-snap in Saskatchewan, anglers in the province have been reminded to remove their fishing shelters.
According to a government release, shelters south of Highway 16 must be removed by March 15 and shelters in areas north of Highway 16 must be removed by March 31.
The Environment Ministry says ice fishing shelters are abandoned on the ice each year.
Shelters not removed pose a danger to boaters, water-skiers and others enjoying our lakes.
Pieces wash up on shore and can also cause environmental hazards.
If shelters are not removed, owners may be prosecuted, and the structure and contents may be removed and confiscated.
