DNR holding "Free Fishing" weekend starting Saturday across Wisconsin

NOW: DNR holding “Free Fishing“ weekend starting Saturday across Wisconsin


WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- The DNR is holding a "free fishing" weekend starting Saturday across Wisconsin.

That means you can go fishing on inland waters, Wisconsin's side of the Great Lakes, and the Mississippi River without a license. All of the other fishing rules, like catch limits, still apply.

Ice fishing equipment will be available at nearly two dozen sites across the state.

There's also a free ice fishing clinic in Fond du Lac County at the "Mauthe Lake State Recreation Area" on Saturday.
