Are charter fishing or guided fishing opportunities available?

Charter and fishing guide operations that involve boats, canoes and other marine vessels may operate provided they:

  1. Maintain six feet of distance from one another, to the extent possible. When boat size or fishing activities might not allow for proper social distancing, masks and other personal protection equipment must be worn.  
  2. Ensure the use of personal protective equipment such as gloves, goggles, face shields, and face masks as appropriate for the activity being performed.
  3. Adopt protocols to limit the sharing of tools and equipment to the maximum extent possible and to ensure frequent and thorough cleaning of tools, equipment, and frequently touched surfaces.

In addition to the DNR Law Enforcement Division, Michigan State Police and local law enforcement agencies have full authority to enforce the provisions of this order.
