There are only four days each year that you can go out and enjoy Michigan’s premier fishing for free. Two of those day are happening this weekend February 16th and 17th as the Michigan DNR has announced a free fishing weekend.
All fishing license fees will be waived for resident and out of state visitors on these days. Another bonus that you can take advantage of is that a recreation passport will not be required for entry into Michigan State Parks & Recreation Areas on these day but do keep in mind all other fishing regulations are still in effect.
If you are an ORV enthusiasts we have great news for you too. During the Summer Free Fishing Weekend it is also Free ORV Weekend! Stay tuned to the Michigan DNR website for more information, news, and planning.
