LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Dale Zorn, R-Ida, is reminding Michigan residents and out-of-state visitors that the Michigan Department of Natural Resources’ (DNR) Summer Free Fishing Weekend is this Saturday and Sunday, June 9 and 10.
The DNR program enables residents and nonresidents to fish without a license on these two days for all species on all waters, though all other fishing regulations still apply. Entry into state public boating access sites, state parks and recreation areas is also free of charge.
Since 1986, Michigan has celebrated the free weekend as a way to promote awareness of the state’s vast aquatic resources and to give families a great chance to pass along the joy of fishing to the next generation. For more information, visit www.Michigan.gov/FreeFishing.
