Welcome to the Sauk Rapids Fisheries Management Area. Our office manages the lakes, rivers, and streams in Wright, Stearns, and Sherburne Counties in Central MN. We actively manage the fisheries on 150 lakes, 60 miles of the Mississippi River, over 200 miles of warm water rivers, one trout lake, and five trout streams. Our work area is in the heart of bass/bluegill territory in central MN; furthermore, the Mississippi River from St. Cloud to Anoka is home to one of the greatest Smallmouth Bass fisheries in the state! In addition to Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass and Bluegill, there are excellent opportunities to target Walleye, Northern Pike, Muskellunge, Black Crappie, Brook Trout, Channel Catfish, and Common Carp. Three state record fish have come from this area including White Crappie, Greater Redhorse, and Common Carp. On this site you can find information about recent surveys, fish stockings, special regulations, and other useful information. If you have any questions feel free to e-mail or call in.
