While I was camped at my seasonal for the month of July an older fellow came by for some chat about camping and fishing.This fellow is from Alberta and was travelling throught the Provinces fishing etc.For one he was amazed at the numbers of fish you could catch in Manitoba he was also amazed how cheap our licences are even though out of Province did go up this year.While travelling throught Saskatchewan camping he was angered at how high a licence was for him to fish in that Province so he said he did not buy one.He was mentioning that with such high licence fees in Saskatchewan he was wondering if it would hurt the tourism for that Province I said I imagine it would somewhat he says why go there and pay that why not just drive to Manitoba instead and fish? This is one mans opinion I wonder how many more tourists are doing the same as he is?makes you wonder.

My uncle from B.C said the same thing about the high cost, but he said its worth it for him to get some good fishing in Sask. All he thinks about is that walleye shore lunch that he doesn't get in B.C. I thought the high cost would hurt tourism but i've seen lots of Alberta and Manitoba plates in the parking lot at some lakes. You would think that tourism Sask. would want more people to visit here but with all the cost increases it doesn't seem that way. I don't mind paying if it goes back into the parks and lakes.

Very interesting post,same experience I had and posted in Alberta Angler site.Man did I get slammed for critizing Saskatchewans costs.Being a past resident of that Province makes you see that they are going to hurt there Tourism real bad.I am sure there are people from Alta. and Man. that found out this year but won't go back to fish.Too bad.

my home waters being a very poplular place for edmontonians(meadow lake prov park) i can honestly say that the increase has had little to no effect on the insane fishing pressure(overfishing i guess in the park). i think its a matter of three walleye here or 0 keep on most waters near edmonton ie; pigeon lake, which probably has better walleye fishing than most of sask but albertans flock to sask to take home 3 or 5 fish??? i know if i lived in emdmonton or red deer i would not be driving 5 hrs to take home 3 walleye when i could catch and release all the walleye i want on pigeon. just my take on things. there are better and cheaper ways to get a feed of fish, keep some perch if its that big of deal.
