Snelling lake + Permit?

4 posts in this topic

I think i might bring the canoe to snelling lake on sunday and try for some northerns. I want to get out bright and early, do i need any special permit to fish the lake or get into the park? If so what time does the ranger station open where i can get a permit?

Thanks for any help!

Happy Opener!

You don't need a canoe to catch them feisty pike. Fishing from shore will be just fine but it doesn't hurt being able to explore the whole lake. There plenty and fun to catch. Use lighter tackle for a challenge.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
