Lake City area fisheries

1801 South Oak Street 
Lake City, MN 55041

Lake City area staff electro-fishing during an assessment on a designated trout stream where recent habitat work occurred.

Anglers who fish in Goodhue, Olmsted, Wabasha and Winona county areas benefit from the management, habitat and oversight work of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources' Lake City area fisheries staff.

Area Fisheries Supervisor Kevin Stauffer with four full-time and one part-time employee manage a handful of reservoirs and the Mississippi River from Hastings to the Iowa border. The area includes the Mississippi's 29,295-acre Lake Pepin, which stretches 21 miles from Red Wing to Alma, Wis. Area staff also manage 200 miles of trout streams and two popular medium-sized rivers – the Cannon and Zumbro.

 

New Mississippi River border waters regulation proposed

Three public meetings have been scheduled to discuss proposed regulations that would change the bag limit and size restrictions. Meetings are scheduled:

  • Tuesday, Nov. 13, at the Red Wing Environmental Learning Center, 442 Guernsey Lane, Red Wing.
  • Wednesday, Nov. 14, at the Winona Middle School, 1570 Homer Road, Winona.
  • Thursday, Nov. 15, at the Wisconsin DNR Service Center, 3550 Mormon Coulee Road, La Crosse, Wis.

All meetings will run from 6 to 8 pm. Information on the regulations proposal will be available in an open house format.

The online survey form is available for those who cannot attend one of the public open house meetings.

Comments and completed questionnaires on the regulation proposals will be accepted through Friday, Nov. 30, 2018.
