Learn to Fish with Michigan DNR

Good news! The DNR is offering “Hook, Line and Sinker” programs at over 30 state parks and hatcheries across the state this summer. Learn
fishing basics, like knot-tying, casting, selecting and using bait, and removing the fish from the hook.
Our experienced, friendly staff provides the instruction, the equipment and the bait, all you need is a Recreation Passport to enter the park. 
To find a Hook, Line and Sinker program near you, visit www.michigan.gov/hooklineandsinker for a list of participating parks.
Programs are being added regularly, so bookmark the page and check back often.
As always, children under the age of 17 are not required to have a fishing license. Hook, Line and Sinker programs are free; however, a Recreation Passport is required for each vehicle entering the park.
