Free fishing weekend: No licenses required on the ice this weekend

By  | 

LANSING (WJRT) (2/13/2019) - For two days, Michiganders can enjoy one of the state's best outdoor activities for free.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is offering one of two free fishing weekends on Saturday and Sunday. That means anyone fishing or ice fishing won't need a license.

Residents and out of state visitors can fish on both inland and the Great Lakes waters for all species of fish. Other fishing rules still will be in effect, such as fish size and the number of fish to keep.

In addition to free fishing, admission to Michigan state parks and recreation areas also will be free. However, admission charges will still apply to some attractions in the parks.
