DNR Q & A: Muskie Question #3

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources field staff, resource managers and the DNR Information Center staff answer many questions every day about natural resources topics. Here is one of them:

Q. Where in Minnesota can you fish for muskie now?

A. Muskie are native to Minnesota waters, and they were present historically in many lakes and rivers, mainly in the north-central and northeast part of the state in waters connected to each other in the Mississippi River watershed. They were actually found in all the major watersheds in the state.

 

— Chris Kavanaugh, northeast region fisheries manager
