Bloomington fishing

Go fish Bloomington lakes

Go fish in a Bloomington lake. Bass, crappies, northern pike, sunfish and muskies await your lure. With lakes and rivers in City parks, Hyland Park Reserve and the Minnesota National Wildlife Refuge, opportunities to nab the big one abound.

Who doesn’t like a good fish story? Make yours come true at Bush Lake, Normandale Lake and the Minnesota River—the most popular Bloomington locations to actually catch fish.

Along with your bait and tackle, check up on licensing. A fishing license is required for adults and is available from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources at For information about fishing in Bloomington, visit or call 952-563-8877.
