Going Fishing?

With more than 10,000 lakes and 15,000 miles of fishing streams, we agree with those who say that Minnesota has the best inland fishing of any state in the U.S.

Minnesota also has more fishing boats, and sells more fishing licenses per capita, than any other state.

The Minnesota State Fish…the walleye is what many anglers hope to catch. For your best chance at walleyes, think about heading to the larger, colder, Minnesota fishing lakes in the northern parts of the state. Northern and Central Minnesota lakes are also your best bet if you hope to land a trophy Northern Pike or Muskie. Lakes all over Minnesota offer great fishing for a wide variety of fish.

If you haven’t already done so, you may want to reserve a spot at one of our famous Minnesota fishing resorts.

Minnesota fishing expert, Ron Shara is a legend to Minnesota anglers. He shares his secrets about how and where to catch fish in Ron Schara's Minnesota Fishing Guide.

You can purchase a fishing license online on the DNR website or many other places including bait shops, gas stations, hardware stores, marinas, resorts and sporting goods stores.

Fishing regulations change almost yearly, so pick up a free copy of the Minnesota Fishing Regulations book wherever licenses are sold.

Take some time before the big day to make sure you have all of your fishing equipment and supplies.

Post photos of your catch and share your fishing stories on the Visit Minnesota website: Minnesota Fishing Report

Fishing Minnesota lakes and rivers is a wonderful family activity. Our parents took us fishing, we took our kids fishing and they now take their children fishing.

“If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles.” ~Doug Larson
