Dad and Boy Fish

Dad and Boy FishThe Fishing Opener in Minnesota is May 10 and Faribault should be the place you should be. Why? Faribault has 10 lakes to choose from! This makes it easy to hop around the lakes and find the perfect spot. Did you know Faribault hosted the Governor’s Fishing Opener in 1985? Faribault was one of just 3 southern Minnesota locations to be a host city. Contact the Faribault Tourism office or look over the Lakes, Camping & Resort page in our brand new 2014 Visitor Guide for more information. The fish are biting here!
