DNR launches new Fish Minnesota website

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has created a new, easy-to-use website that features rewritten and reorganized open water fishing regulations. Anglers will be able to access fishing information on a desktop browser and mobile devices such as phones and tablets and they’ll find an enhanced LakeFinder site to look up lake-specific fishing regulations and more. 

The mobile Fish Minnesota website also highlights locations of fishing piers, boat landings, family-friendly fishing spots and metro-area bait shops. 

Join the DNR for a demonstration using the new website,, which goes live Wednesday morning.
