The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area (National Park Service), and other partners, are co-sponsoring a four-day fishing event at various locations along the Mississippi River in the greater Minneapolis/Saint Paul area.
Come down to the river to learn about fish and fishing from the MN DNR, NPS staff, and volunteers. All equipment will be provided, including tackle, rod/reel combinations, and bait. Fishing license requirements are waived for these events. No license necessary! At Lake Rebecca we typically catch bluegills, perch, and some largemouth bass. You might even catch a northern pike!
This particular program is located at the Lake Rebecca Park in Hastings, Minnesota. Parking is available at the park and we'll meet at either of the two fishing piers.
