Spring is the official kickoff of Michigan’s open-water fishing season and whether you’re looking to pile up a mess of perch on a quiet inland lake, tangle with a trophy-class salmon on the big water of the Great Lakes or work on your flycasting skills for trout on one of Michigan’s revered streams, there’s no shortage of opportunities.
A full-season license costs $26 or you can buy a 24-hour pass for $10. A senior license costs just $11. You can buy licenses at any license retailer found at hundreds of locations around the state or you can visit www.michigan.gov/dnr and use the e-license system and print our your license immediately following purchase.
The license allows you to fish for all species of fish, including trout and salmon. Be sure to check the DNR’s annual Fishing Guide for size limits, season dates and creel limits as well as any advisories or special stream regulations.
If you’re looking for a place to go, check out the Where To Fish section on the Michigan DNR website.
