To protect the environment and ensure safety, anglers MUST now register new or previously unregistered ice-fishing huts. This is now mandatory through the Province of Alberta.
Identify all ice fishing shacks with your WiN number OR Name, Address and Phone number. Remove all ice fishing huts when ice is still safe to do so, prior to spring breakup.
Ice hut registration numbers should be clearly displayed on the outside of huts. We also ask that ice hut owners keep the area around their huts clear of garbage. Registration is required to identify the owner of an ice hut in the event of a littering problem or if the ice hut is not removed from the ice by the end of the ice fishing season.
Report environmental complaints to the Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development at 1 800 222 6514.
