From Friday, June 7, to Sunday, June 9, Minnesota residents can fish without licenses if they take children 15 or younger fishing. While Minnesotans 15 and younger don’t need fishing licenses any time of the year, Take a Kid Fishing Weekend is a way for adults and kids to fish together without the step of buying a license. Anyone who wants to learn how to fish can visit the DNR website at mndnr.gov/GoFishing. Fishing gear is available to borrow at state parks and the DNR’s I Can Fish program teaches the basics of fishing and runs throughout the summer at state parks. You can find more information on the DNR website about these and other hands-on fishing activities.
