02/14/2020- Anglers can hit Michigan waters for free this weekend. The DNR is hosting their annual winter Free Fishing Weekend February 15th and 16th and will waive fishing license fees during those two days. A Recreation Passport will also not be required for entry into state parks and recreation areas during this weekend. This offer is good for both residents and out-of-state visitors and all other fishing regulations still apply. The DNR hosts Free Fishing Weekends twice a year- typically the weekend prior to President’s Day and the weekend after the first full week of June.
