IDNR Report

The Indian chain of lakes includes the Dallas, Hackenberg, Messick, Westler, and Witmer lakes.

The West Lakes chain of lakes includes Jones, Steinbarger, Tamarack, and Waldron lakes.

An idle speed restriction is put into effect when surface water conditions are likely to enter dwelling structures as a result of wake.

Michigan and Indiana have some free fishing days in the coming weeks. That means you won’t need a fishing license and but all other regulations apply.

Indiana will offer one May 18 and June 1-2. Unfortunately, Indiana’s free fishing days are limited to residents.

Michigan’s free fishing days, June 8-9, are open to residents and non-residents. In addition, the recreation passport isn’t required, so there won’t be charges to use state-owned public boating access sites.
