Minnesota’s lakes, rivers and streams are home to over 158 species of freshwater fish. Three Rivers Parks welcomes you to come throw a line for your own catch of the day. Here you might reel in muskie, northern pike, sunfish, bass or even walleye. Launch your boat at one of our lake access sites, rent a boat or keep your feet on dry land as you fish from one of our piers. Our Water Resources Management division carefully monitors and maintains the health of our water systems to maximize your fishing experience. Review the DNR Lake Designations for Three Rivers Parks.
Anglers aged 16 and older must have a valid Minnesota fishing license.
Wheelchair-accessible fishing piers are located near boat launches at Bryant Lake, Lake Auburn, Cleary Lake, Fish Lake, Medicine Lake, Gale Woods Farm, Lake Minnetonka, Lake Rebecca, Steiger Lake and Lake Independence.
Disposing of Fishing Line
Left-behind fishing line can be deadly to fish, birds and other animals that become entangled in it. The best way to discard fishing line is through a monofilament recycling program. If this is not an option, you should cut fishing line into very small pieces before throwing it away.
