FREE Fishing This Weekend
Each year the first weekend in June is FREE Fishing Weekend in Michigan. During this weekend, you do not need a fishing license to fish in Michigan. Several local parks have special kids fishing events with equipment and instructions available.
You can find a full state-wide list of special Free Fishing Weekend events on the Department of Natural Resources Website. I have pulled the following Ann Arbor Area events from both the list above and what I have found on local parks pages.
