GO FISH!!

Fishing.jpgThe next Saskatchewan Weekend marks the province's second free fishing weekend of the summer. Everyone - including visitors to our province - will be free to fish on those days without having to buy a licence.

So we'll have some fun fishing features & songs, and maybe even play a game of "Go Fish" or two.

Plus, Canadian Travel Columnist Kim Gray is going to take us to Vancouver Island to do some whale watching (but remember, a whale is not a fish)!!
