Fishermen in Wausau take advantage of DNR's Free Fishing Weekend

Posted:
WAUSAU (WAOW) - People in Wausau are taking advantage of Free Fishing Weekend.

The DNR is inviting people to fish anywhere in Wisconsin without a fishing license or trout stamp through Sunday.

Fishermen on Lake Wausau say their lines were mostly quiet today, but one man says fishing is more about the experience.

"Tradition," said Todd Kuehl. "We did it with my dad and he's passed and now we do it. Just something we do. "

The fishing may be free, but the DNR website states the usual fishing regulations, such as limits on the amount of fish people can keep, still apply.
