Free Fishing Weekend

Submitted by on February 13, 2020 – 12:14 amNo Comment

Outdoor enthusiasts have another option this weekend, during the state’s Winter Free Fishing Weekend.

Residents and non-residents alike can fish without a license on Saturday and Sunday, although all other fishing regulations still apply.

In addition, the Department of Natural Resources is waiving the regular Recreation Passport entry fee that grants vehicle access to Michigan’s 103 state parks and more than 1,300 DNR-managed boating access sites.

The fee will also be waived on Monday to coincide with the DNR’s changeover to a new license sales system.

More information about free fishing weekend can be found online at Michigan.gov/FreeFishing.
