Trout fishing season opens in Minnesota

LANESBORO, Minn. (FOX 47) — It’s officially trout season in Minnesota. Despite the colder temps and snow on the ground, fishers took to bodies of water on Saturday to celebrate the opening.

Minnesota has roughly 3,800 miles of designated trout streams. Its four coldwater hatcheries produce more than 1.7 million trout, which are mostly fingerlings and yearlings.

Lanesboro Area Fisheries Supervisor, Ron Benjamin says “Southeastern Minnesota offers some of the best trout fishing in the upper Midwest. The populations are as good as any in the country.”
