2001 MICHIGAN FISHING SEASON BEGINS APRIL 1|
LANSING--The 2001 Michigan fishing season officially begins
Sunday, April 1, and anglers now can purchase their new
licenses via the Web site at www.michigandnr.com.
By clicking on the e-license link on the DNR Web site,
anglers can purchase their fishing and hunting licenses 24
hours a day, seven days a week.
The 2001 Michigan Fishing Licenses, which are valid through
March 31, 2002, also may be purchased at more than 1,700
license dealers and Michigan Department of Natural Resources
The 2001 Michigan Fishing Guide, a handy companion to the
2001 Michigan Fishing License, is available where fishing
licenses are sold. The guide provides fishing regulations
and other fishing-related information helpful to anglers
fishing Michigan's freshwater Great Lakes and inland waters.
Major regulation changes for the 2001-2002 season are
detailed on page 10 of the new guide, and a list of DNR
Operations Service Centers, including their respective
addresses and telephone numbers can be found on page 48.
The Inland Trout and Salmon Guide 2001, a separate
publication, allows anglers to easily determine the trout
and salmon fishing regulations for a given inland lake or
stream, simply by looking at a map.
Anglers also may wish to make note of the upcoming June 9-
10, Free Fishing Weekend. For details on this program and
more information on Michigan fishing, visit the DNR Web site
at www.michigandnr.com, or call the DNR Fisheries Division
