The recent "Stay Home, Stay Safe" Executive Order states that individuals may still engage in outdoor activities while keeping proper social distance from those around you.
- Individuals and members of the same household may engage in outdoor activities together. Head out to fish only if you're feeling well. Practice social distancing, at least 6 feet away from another person (outside your own household). Frequently wash your hands with soap and warm water or use hand sanitizer. If driving to or from your nearby fishing spot, roll the windows down a bit for air flow.
- Fishing tournaments and charter fishing and guiding services are prohibited through at least April 13. Additionally, fishing tournaments over 50 people at DNR boating access sites are canceled through at least May 15.
- State parks, trails, boat launches and other public lands remain open, with certain provisions affecting visitor services in place. State harbors and campgrounds are closed.
