Beginning July 1, Minnesota residents are able to fish in a State Park without a fishing license.

The new regulation does not alter or amend any rules or regulations pertaining to either Minnesota fishing regulations or State Park rules, but gives anglers a chance to catch fish without purchasing a license.


Shore fishing, wading, and fishing from a boat or float on designated lakes within the state park is permitted.
