No fishing license needed in Michigan this weekend (June 13 & 14)

There’s lots of fun to be had this weekend in Michigan as no fishing licenses are needed for residents and non-residents! This Saturday, June 13 and Sunday, June 14 make up the 2015 Summer Free Fishing Weekend, an annual effort to promote Michigan’s numerous fishing opportunities.

While many individuals and families will head out to fish for free on their own this weekend there are also numerous organized events scheduled throughout the state to celebrate as well. Various locations throughout Michigan will host scheduled events; including things like fishing derbies/tournaments, festivals, instructional sessions, and much more! More than 25 counties in the state have opportunities available.
