Fishing in Minnesota

Remember that if you are 16 or older in the State of Minnesota, you need to have a fishing license. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has a fishing webpage to help answer angler questions. The page answers questions like:

  • What species can I fish for?
  • What kind of bait is legal?
  • What kind of fish can I keep?

The page also is a mobile-friendly destination for information on when, where and how to fish. Users can find links to LakeFinder (, which provides maps and detailed information on lakes throughout the state, and the new StreamFinder ( tool that provides a description, species list, regulations and access information for trout streams throughout Minnesota. The DNR fishing page also includes an online version of Minnesota fishing regulations

For current updates on where the bite is hot and what other anglers are using, a subscription to the Outdoor News FISHING REPORTS gives you information you are not going to find anywhere else!
