Can we go fishing?

Postby hemichemi » Tue Mar 24, 2020 5:51 pm

Has anyone heard/seen anything about going solo fishing in a boat in MI with the governor's order in effect? Being alone in a boat isn't exposing anyone to anything. I confess to not reading the entire order...

There are 10 possibilities: you either understand binary, or you don't.

You’re ok to fish alone or with whom you reside

Here is the post from the DNR...

We've received some questions concerning the activity of fishing following the recent "stay home, stay safe" order from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. The order given today stated that individuals may still engage in outdoor activities while following proper social distance from those around you.

Fishing is one of those activities that can be done while following social distancing recommendations. We encourage you to spend some time fishing, but please keep your health and the health of others in mind.

- Maintain at least 6 feet between you and another person

- If driving to and from a fishing spot, keep your vehicle's windows slightly down to allow air flow

- Frequently wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds; if soap and water aren't available, use a hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol

As a reminder, we have taken steps to close some facilities and cancel or postpone meetings and events to reduce coronavirus risk to Michigan residents. Check for the latest information available.
