- Enjoy some ice fishing this weekend without needing to get a license. The DNR's winter free fishing weekend is THIS Saturday and Sunday. That means you can fish on all inland waters and Wisconsin's side of the Great Lakes and Mississippi River.Anglers still need to follow rules like bag limits and size restrictions.You do not need to be a Wisconsin resident.
Nearly 20 DNR sites have ice fishing gear you can borrow. They have ice fishing tip-ups and jigging rods at many state parks and DNR offices. You can fish for free locally in Rhinelander from 1 until 3 Saturday on Lake Julia. (Copyright 2014 Associated Press - All Rights Reserved)
