If you'd like to go fishing over the holiday weekend, or at any time this summer, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is making it easier than ever.

According to the DNR, people are able to fish from shore without a license in most state parks on a lake or river that doesn’t require a trout stamp.

Furthermore, free fishing kits, which include a rod and tackle, are loaned out on a first-come, first-served basis at many state parks, thanks to funding from the DNR’s MinnAqua program.
