Free Fishing Weekend

Everyone can fish for free this weekend in Michigan. Since 1994, Free Fishing Weekend, has allowed residents and non-residents to fish without a license. All fishing regulations will still apply but people can enjoy some of the state's finest freshwater. Michigan is home to more than 3,000 miles of the Great Lakes shoreline and has more than 11,000 inland lakes and a vast number of rivers and streams. Several events are planned around the state, including the 3rd Annual Ryan Williams Perch Derby in Pentwater, on Saturday morning. For more information on Free Fishing Weekend visit
