Free Fishing Weekend
Families and friends can enjoy one of Michigan’s premier outdoor activities, Michigan Fishing, for FREE!
All fishing license fees will be waived for two days. A Recreation Passport will NOT be required for entry into state parks and recreation areas during Free Fishing Weekend. 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.
Many locations around the state hold fun events during the weekend.
