Free fishing and free admission to state parks and trails among offerings
MADISON - Free fun is on tap June 3 and 4 for everyone in Wisconsin's great outdoors.
On these two days, Wisconsin residents and visitors can fish for free, hike or bike state trails for free, enjoy free admission to state parks and forests and ride public ATV trails for free.
"Wisconsin's great outdoors is always the ticket to fun and on June 3 and 4 it gets even better," says Department of Natural Resources Secretary Cathy Stepp. "The fun's on us."
Free fun weekend is for Wisconsin residents and visitors alike:
- No fishing license is needed to fish any waters. This includes inland trout and Great Lakes trout and salmon fishing, which normally would require a trout stamp in addition to a license. Fishing rules such as limits on the size and species of fish that can be kept do apply, however.
- All state trail pass fees on all DNR-owned state trails are waived and cooperatively-run state trails also may waive fees.
- All state park vehicle admission sticker fees on all DNR-owned properties are waived.
- ATV registration and trail pass fees are waived.
