River Fest 2018

August 11 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free event and open to the public. No registration required.

Join National Park Rangers on the fishing decks of the Coon Rapids Dam and try your hand at catching the fish of the Mississippi River. We provide the equipment, bait, and encouragement. All youth must be accompanied by adults.

Other activities are available as well!

Fishing licenses are required for participants age 16 or older. Those 15 and younger are not required to have licenses. The fish likely to be caught include northern pike, catfish, smallmouth bass, bluegills, and carp. There are typically lots of fish in the area and some are quite large!
