Free Fishing Weekend

Just a reminder that all Michigan residents and non-residents can fish without a license this Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9. Please note all other fishing regulations still apply.

Saturday and Sunday make up the Summer Free Fishing Weekend, an annual effort to promote Michigan’s numerous fishing opportunities. While many individuals and families will head out to fish for free on their own, there are also numerous organized events scheduled throughout the state to celebrate the weekend as well.
