Free Fishing Weekend In Wisconsin

Free Fishing Weekend starts
on Saturday and it’s a great time to get out on the water or to the shore of
your favorite lake or river. DNR fisheries director Justine Hasz says there’s
some excellent fishing available right now that should appeal to both kids and
adults. 
We’re always joking that
when the lilacs are blooming the bluegills are biting and that is certainly the
case right now. So definitely panfish around the state, bluegills, and then
bass species, both largemouth and smallmouth bass, are very active right
now.” 
Hasz reminds people that
even though it’s free to fish without a license, that they still have to abide
by all other regulations, and that they should be aware of social distancing
guidelines while out on the water.
