DETROIT – Enjoy three days of fishing this weekend even if you don’t have a fishing license.
Michigan hosts two Free Fishing Weekends each year. This winter’s includes Saturday, Sunday and Monday because the Department of Natural Resources is moving to a new system, so fishing licenses can’t be purchased during that time.
Additionally, Recreation Passports are not needed to enter state parks during the weekend and Monday.
All other rules and regulations apply.
Normally, a yearly fishing license is required to catch fish in Michigan waters. Licenses can be purchased here.
