Michigan is home to world-class fishing with 3,000 miles of Great Lakes shoreline, more than 11,000 inland lakes, and tens of thousands of miles and rivers and streams. With all these opportunities you’re never very far from a fun-filled day on the water.
Grab a rod and head out to your spot to land a big one. Panfish, walleye, northern pike, bass, trout and salmon are popular species to target during the open water season with numerous techniques to do so.
First time anglers can take advantage of Free Fishing Weekend, June 11-12, 2016. All fishing license fees will be waived for these two days and residents and out-of-state visitors alike can enjoy fishing for all species of fish. The DNR also offers how-to information (including videos) and weekly fishing reports online.
Take a day, or better yet – a weekend, to head outdoors and experience the finest fishing that’s Pure Michigan.
