You may want to get ready for the opening of three fishing seasons coming this Saturday, April 28!
The statewide trout season; the Lower Peninsula inland walleye, pike and muskellunge seasons; and the catch-and-immediate-release bass season for all Lower Peninsula waters including the Great Lakes all open that day.
It should be noted that in Upper Peninsula waters, the walleye, pike and muskellunge seasons don?t open until May 15 ? which is the same date the catch-and-immediate-release season for bass in the same waters also opens.
Possession season for bass opens statewide on Saturday, May 26, except for Lake St. Clair, St. Clair River and the Detroit River which open on Saturday, June 16.
The new license season began on April 1, so anglers need to be sure they have purchased a new fishing license for this fishing season. The 2012 fishing licenses remain valid until March 31, 2013. For information on purchasing a license visit www.michigan.gov/fishinglicense.
The 2012 Michigan Fishing Guide and Inland Trout & Salmon Maps are available online, visit the DNR website at www.michigan.gov/fishingguide for more information.
