Michigan Free Fishing Weekend @ Michigan
Jun 10 – Jun 11 all-day
Michigan Free Fishing Weekend @ Michigan | Michigan | United States

Michigan’s Free Fishing Weekends: An annual tradition

Two days twice a year, families and friends can enjoy one of Michigan’s premiere outdoor activities, fishing, for FREE!

June 10th & 11th, 2017

All fishing license fees will be waived for two days. Residents and out-of-state visitors may enjoy fishing on both inland and Great Lakes’ waters for all species of fish. All fishing regulations will still apply.

For many, the annual Free Fishing Weekend has become a tradition – a time to get together and have some fishing fun. While some may find time to reflect while fishing, there are no limits to variations on a great theme! Experienced anglers who offer a child or young adult the chance to take their first fishing trip can provide a rewarding experience for all. People who fish tend to understand the natural aquatic network of plants and animals that help to sustain fish as well as the regulations that govern fishing in Michigan.

Research shows that young people today do not have access to fishing opportunities that were enjoyed by generations before them. Some of the reasons: living in urban or suburban areas where fishing access is not readily available, competition for time by an ever-increasing schedule of special activities, and too little time for unstructured leisure.

Michigan offers some of the finest freshwater fishing in the world, with more than 3,000 miles of Great Lakes shoreline, more than 11,000 inland lakes and tens of thousands of miles of rivers and streams.

So grab a rod and your family and friends, and let’s go fishing!
