Free Fishing Weekend Feb 18-19


Recommended Posts

Offers Great Opportunity for Families to GO-Get Outdoors

Michigan's annual Winter Free Fishing Weekend, Feb. 18-19, is a great time for families to bundle up, get outdoors and go fishing. For these two days, residents and nonresidents can fish without purchasing a fishing license, though all other fishing regulations still apply. Anglers 17 or older who plan to fish on the President's Day holiday, Monday, Feb. 20, must possess a valid fishing license.

Winter Free Fishing Weekend is designed to invite people out to discover that Michigan provides great fishing fun even in winter. Although recent mild temperatures have made it unsafe for ice fishing in many parts of the state, there still is plenty of angling opportunity from piers; from shore along rivers, streams and canals and from boats where there is plenty of open water.

Where conditions allow fishing through the ice, the Department of Natural Resources reminds all anglers to dress warm, use the buddy system, always wear a life jacket and use caution when traveling across any ice.
