Minnesotans who have yet to wet a line can do it this weekend without a license while accompanying a child younger than 16, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

The annual Take-A-Kid Fishing weekend is designed to rekindle childhood memories, construct some new ones and create the next generation of anglers who will be the future stewards of the state’s natural resources.

There are several keys to providing that special experience. The most important one is for the adult to leave their fishing pole at home so they can focus on the child’s positive angling experience.

Visit to find helpful fishing information, including the location of fishing piers, how to rig fishing gear and fish identification. Local bait shops also can offer good advice on where to take a child fishing.

Free Minnesota state parks “I Can Fish!” programs provide opportunities for angles to sharpen their fishing skills. Visit to locate a nearby program. A list of parks that provide free loaner equipment is available at
