Gone Fishin’


Clearly, fishing weather is upon us! Fishing season in Michigan runs May 26 through December 31 and Michigan’s Free Fishing Weekend is June 9-10! That means all license fees will be waived, and a recreation passport will NOT be required for entry into state parks and recreation areas! Did you know … catfish, smallmouth bass, black crappie, walleye and bluegill are caught in abundance in our local parks? National Go Fishing Day is June 18. Celebrate by packing up your picnic, topping off your tackle box, and heading to one of Genesee County’s many great fishing spots!

Many other fishing sites are listed here: geneseecountyparks.org/explore/other-fishing-sites/
