Take a mom fishing on Mother’s Day weekend

Mothers who are residents of Minnesota can fish without a license from Saturday, May 7, to Sunday, May 8, during “Take a Mom Fishing Weekend.”

During the weekend, mothers can fish only for species that have open fishing seasons. Take a Mom Fishing Weekend each year coincides with Mother’s Day, which this year is the weekend before the fishing season opens for walleye, northern pike, bass and trout in lakes.

Fishing is already open for species that are popular among anglers all year, like crappie, bluegill and trout in streams. For more information on fishing seasons and regulations, visit www.mndnr.gov/fishmnregs.
