Michigan’s Free Fishing Weekend slated for June 13-14

The Department of Natural Resources reminds everyone that Summer Free Fishing Weekend is scheduled for June 13-14. On that weekend, everyone -residents and non-residents alike-can fish without a license, though all other fishing regulations apply.

Michigan has celebrated Free Fishing Weekend annually since 1986 as a way to promote natural resources awareness. With more than 3,000 miles of Great Lakes shoreline, 36,000 miles of river and 11,000 inland lakes, Michigan and fishing are a natural match.

“Fishing is a great way to connect with our natural resources,” said DNR Director Rebecca Humphries. “It’s a perfect way for families to spend time together while celebrating the bounty of Michigan’s wonderfully diverse outdoor heritage.”

Dozens of activities at state parks and state fish hatcheries have been scheduled to coincide with the weekend, while clubs and conservation organizations stage events, too. Free Fishing Weekend offers experienced anglers an excellent opportunity to introduce novices to the joys of fishing.

The DNR is committed to the conservation, protection, management, use and enjoyment of the state’s natural resources for current and future generations.
