Free Fishing Weekend – June 1-2, 2019. Fish almost anywhere in Wisconsin without a license or trout stamp on Free Fishing Weekend. Most waters of the state are included, except for spring trout ponds (Review the trout regulations; wherever you see a season date listed for a specific body of water, you’d be fine, although some waters may be catch and release only.) All other inland waters and Wisconsin’s side of the Mississippi River are open for you to test your skills and try your luck.

Remember, all usual regulations and seasonal restrictions are in force. Please exercise caution before heading out on the ice.
