New Michigan license structure
The new license fee structure eliminates the restricted license for fishing for species other than trout and salmon. Everyone must buy an all species license for twenty-five dollars as opposed to the fourteen dollar restricted license or the twenty-eight dollar all species license. This will result in an overall increase in revenues. Do you think this is good for trout and trout fishing? My personal feeling is that it will result in higher fish kill rates and just more people on easily accessed streams. I'm also guessing that the next change in the regulations(three to five years) will be a new restricted license as a revenue generating move. Politicians who choke on the word tax have no problem raising more money if they can call it a fee.
No one is making more water. Use what we have wisely.
