Michigan’s Free Fishing Weekend
Taking place across only two weekends a year, Michigan’s Free Fishing Weekend for the winter season is February 18th and 19th. I know it’s cold out there, but you’ll have to wait all the way until mid-June for the sunny summer weekend! What this means is that for the following two days, license fees will be waived and even out-of-state residents may enjoy fishing on all species of fish in the inland and Great Lake waters of Michigan state.
Take your first fishing trip together, or start a new tradition that brings you back to Michigan twice a year, in different seasons. Start a friendly competition: whoever catches the smallest fish has to buy dinner! But mostly just enjoy some of the world’s highest-quality freshwater sources, straight from prehistoric glaciers that melted into over 11,000 inland lakes. It can’t get much fresher than that. Visit the website for more information on the Free Fishing Weekend dates, download a trout trails application on your mobile phone, and gain access to many of the state’s best resources on fishing and nature.
From the Huron House, drive a little over 13 miles north on US 23 to Cedar Lake Marine. This boat sale and service can provide you with the lake accessibility needed for the Free Fishing Weekend.
