Anglers are reminded that on Friday, April 1, all anglers 17 years of age and older will be required to have a 2016 fishing license. Be sure to pick up a copy of the 2016-2017 Fishing Guide (remember it's a two-year guide - so don't throw it away!) when you purchase your license. River fishing has been good but the inland lakes especially to the north are still too cold.
The Weekly Fishing Report is intended to give anglers an idea of what is going on around the state. Updates come from DNR Fisheries seasonal and field staff, and DNR Conservation Officers. With more than 11,000 inland lakes, the Great Lakes and thousands of miles of rivers and streams, not all locations can be listed. However, it is safe to say if a species is being caught in some waters in the area, they are likely being caught in all waters in that section of the state that have that species.
