That means you don’t need a fishing license to go out and toss a line in the water. Whether you’re on a boat or fishing from shore, the DNR says it’s a great opportunity for residents and visitors alike to set your bait and reel in a fish worthy of telling stories about around the summer campfire.

Conservation Officer Will Kinney says, “It’s just a great opportunity for anglers young and old  to come out and enjoy this activity that maybe that have not partaken in some time. Or who might be interested in trying fishing.”
