Just a reminder that all Michigan residents and non-residents can fish without a license this Saturday, February 16 and Sunday, February 17. Please note all other fishing regulations still apply.
Saturday and Sunday make up the Winter Free Fishing Weekend – an annual effort to encourage folks to get outside to experience Michigan’s winter water wonderland. While many individuals and families will head out to fish for free on their own, the DNR is pleased to share there are numerous organized events scheduled throughout the state to celebrate this weekend as well.
Various counties throughout Michigan will host scheduled events; including Antrim, Bay, Clinton, Gogebic, Ingham, Iron, Monroe, Montcalm, Oakland, Ogemaw, Presque Isle, Roscommon, Tuscola, Van Buren, Washtenaw, Wayne and Wexford. Please note most events are weather dependent.
If you’d like to see all of the events occurring this weekend, visit the official event chart online.
