Free Fishing Weekend Offered in Winter Submitted: 01/09/2013
Madison - Anglers will get a chance to fish for free later this month. The state DNR plans to offer its first winter free fishing weekend January 19th and 20th. State residents and non-residents won't need a license or trout stamps, to fish on inland waters or on the Wisconsin side of the Great Lakes and Mississippi River. The state has offered a free fishing weekend on the first weekend in June for years. Legislators passed a law last year creating the winter weekend in an effort to boost participation in outdoor recreation. (Copyright 2013 Associated Press - All Rights Reserved)
