In accordance with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services' recommendations designed to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and the governor's Executive Order 2020-21, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources has determined that charter and fishing guide operations that involve boats, canoes and other marine vessels are not currently permitted.

These operations do not meet any of the variances or exemptions outlined in the governor's order as activities necessary "to sustain or protect life," and they may also congregate anglers in violation of the order and state health recommendations.

These activities should cease immediately and not resume until at least April 13.

In addition to the DNR' Law Enforcement Division, Michigan State Police and local law enforcement agencies have full authority to enforce the provisions of this order.

The state is taking proactive steps to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in Michigan. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in reducing the coronavirus risk to Michigan residents.
