Michigan residents fish free this weekend

LANSING, Mich. — Michigan residents and non-residents can fish without a license this Feb. 15 and 16, but all other fishing regulations still apply, the Department of Natural Resources announced.

Saturday and Sunday make up the Winter Free Fishing Weekend, an annual effort to encourage folks to get outside to experience Michigan’s winter water wonderland. While many individuals and families will head out to fish for free on their own, the DNR has scheduled several organized events throughout the state to celebrate the weekend as well.

Various counties throughout Michigan will host scheduled events; including Alger, Alpena, Antrim, Arenac, Bay, Cheboygan, Clinton, Emmet, Gogebic, Iosco, Keweenaw, Macomb, Montcalm, Muskegon, Newaygo, Oakland, Otsego, Roscommon, Saginaw, Tuscola, Van Buren, Washtenaw, Wayne and Wexford. Most of the events are weather dependent.
