February 15, 2018: Fish for FREE this weekend!
Just a reminder this Saturday and Sunday brings the 2018 Winter #MiFreeFishingWeekend to Michigan!

On those two days all fishing license fees will be waived. Residents and out-of-state visitors can enjoy fishing on both inland and waters of the Great Lakes for all species during their respective open seasons. Please note all other regulations still apply during that time.

There are plenty of ways to take advantage of the upcoming Free Fishing Weekend - whether that means heading out to your favorite fishing hole or taking your family to an organized event. Please note all events are subject to local weather conditions.

More information on this weekend's unique opportunity to fish for free and this year's official events can be found at Michigan.gov/freefishing.
