Free Fishing Weekend
January 19 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Join in for a FREE fishing weekend! Winter is here. And with it, ice fishing. Never ice fished? This winter might be your chance to fish hard water in the company of experienced anglers. Maybe they are your friends who have a passion you never knew about. Ask them to show you their secret world of catching fish through the ice. Do you already know how to do this? Invite a newcomer along.
Fish almost anywhere in Wisconsin without a license or trout stamp on Free Fishing Weekend. Most waters of the state are included, except for spring trout ponds (Review the trout regulations; wherever you see a season date listed for a specific body of water, you’d be fine, although some waters may be catch and release only.) All other inland waters and Wisconsin’s side of the Great Lakes and Mississippi River are open for you to test your skills and try your luck. Remember, all usual regulations and seasonal restrictions are in force. Please exercise caution before heading out on the ice.
Take advantage of this free opportunity to introduce your friends and family to fishing. All the waters of the state are open; however, all usual regulations are in force.
