Free Fishing Weekend on June 12 & 13, 2021 is held in conjunction with “Three Free” weekend, where residents and nonresidents can grab a fishing pole, ride the off-road trails and visit state parks and boating access sites – all free of charge.
During Free ORV Weekend, Michigan residents and visitors legally can ride without buying an ORV license or trail permit. All other ORV rules and laws still apply. For more information about Free ORV Weekends visit Michigan.gov/ORVInfo.
You can enjoy the outdoors and fish with your family, friends or make it a solo trip!
