Two days twice a year, families can join in on this annual tradition of enjoying Michigan’s premiere outdoor activities while fishing for free. The Free Fishing Weekends for 2012 are scheduled for February 18 and 19, as well as during the summer on June 9 and 10.
During Free Fishing Weekends, all fishing license fees are waived and residents and out-of-state visitors are allowed to enjoy fishing inland and on the Great Lakes. Fishing regulations still apply, but all species of fish can be caught.
