Ready to experience some of the finest fishing around? Check out the 2019 Winter Free Fishing Weekend Saturday, Feb. 16, and Sunday, Feb. 17. Those two days, everyone – residents and non-residents – can fish without a license, though all other fishing regulations still apply.

During this weekend, the DNR also will waive the regular Recreation Passport requirement for vehicle access to Michigan’s 103 state parks. Several locations may be hosting official Winter Free Fishing Weekend events perfect for anglers of all skill levels.

Michigan has celebrated winter’s #MiFreeFishingWeekend every year since 1994 to build awareness of the state's vast aquatic resources and fishing opportunities. With more than 3,000 miles of Great Lakes shoreline, tens of thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and 11,000 inland lakes, Michigan and fishing are a natural match.
