 Michigan's Free Fishing Weekend - Family

Fishing is a part of Michigan's heritage. Fishing is also a relaxing pastime and a great way to spend time with your family. There is no room for cell phones, texting or TV on the dock. This program is your chance to try out fishing. Learn about the types of baits and lures to use, the types of fish you may encounter in Township parks and some tips about nearby "fishing holes".  Saturday at Lost Lake will be a great first experience for young angles and families as we learn how to drop cast, while Sunday's event at Draper will be reserved for the more experienced group as we learn to cast into the lake. We provide everything so no need to remember your poles or bait! All fishing license fees are waived. Register early as we fill up quickly!
