Do you love to go fishing but hate waiting to see if your mom, dad or another adult wants to go? Why not plan the outing yourself?
You can initiate the next fishing trip you take by finding your gear, locating a place to fish, and asking an adult to go with you! Maybe you'd like to locate a spot nearby by searching through the Family Friendly Fishing Waters website? Or you could visit one of several state parks or visitor centers that offer instruction on how to fish through the Hook, Line and Sinker program? The options are almost endless!
Or plan to head out on Saturday, August 4, 2018 - the second annual Take an Adult Fishing Day in Michigan! On that day we'll ask anybody who takes an adult fishing to share their picture with us using the hashtag #TakeAnAdultFishing. We'll randomly select a few winners to receive a fishing gear prize!
