Enjoy free fishing, free admission to Wisconsin state parks first weekend in June

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- Free Fun Weekend will take place June 2 and June 3 in Wisconsin.

During that weekend, Wisconsin residents and visitors can fish for free, enjoy state trails for free, and have free admission to state parks and forests as well as ride public ATV trails for free. 

"Free Fun Weekend is a great time to get outside and try something you've never done before, or introduce a family member or friend to something you've always enjoyed," said Department of Natural Resources Secretary Dan Meyer. "Whether it's fishing, hiking or riding the trails, experiencing Wisconsin's great outdoors during this weekend could just be the start of a new tradition for you."

On Free Fun Weekend, June 2-3, 2018:

  • No fishing license is needed to fish any waters. This includes inland trout and Great Lakes trout and salmon fishing, which normally would require a trout stamp in addition to a license. Fishing rules such as limits on the size and species of fish that can be kept do apply, however.
  • All state trail pass fees on all DNR-owned state trails are waived and cooperatively-run state trails also may waive fees.
  • All state park vehicle admission sticker fees on all DNR-owned properties are waived.
  • ATV registration and trail pass fees are waived
