DNR Announces June 2-3 as Free Fishing Weekend
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has announced that June 2-3 will be a free fishing weekend throughout the state of Wisconsin. A fishing license, inland trout stamp or Great Lakes trout stamp will not be needed on these days, however rules regarding the number and size of fish that anglers can keep will still be enforced. To find regulations in your area, please visit the DNR’s website at http://dnr.wi.gov and search “fishing regulations” or “find a lake.” If you are new to fishing, the DNR will be providing free clinics as well as programs to borrow fishing gear.
