Categories: VanSingel News

Rep. Scott Vansingel of Grant invites everyone to take part in the state’s winter Free Fishing Weekend on Feb. 17 and 18.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is offering all residents and out-of-state visitors the opportunity to fish license-free over the weekend. This is a great way to introduce people to the sport of fishing and show them the amazing natural resources Michigan has to offer.

“This weekend is a great way to experience the outdoors with family and friends,” VanSingel said. “I encourage everyone to take advantage of the countless fishing spots throughout Newaygo, Oceana, and Lake counties.”

Fishing license fees will be waived for two days, although all fishing regulations will still apply. For more information visit, or contact Rep. VanSingel’s office at (517) 373-7317 or by email at
