See the surprise DNR Fisheries staff found in the Minnesota River during this year's Festival Of Fish at Fort Snelling State Park.

Each year, the Festival of Fish brings together Minnesota's diverse peoples to celebrate the role fish play in the history, foods, traditions, art, recreation and social customs of our many cultures. Participants celebrate their differences while learning how fish connect us together in our collective past, present and future. The DNR accomplishes this by sharing conversations and presentations that help participants and partners learn about outdoor recreation Festival Of Fish logoopportunities, including fishing. As generations and cultures gather together to share skills and tell stories about fish, fishing and fisheries management we strengthen the resolve of our communities to foster greater natural resource stewardship. We keep this resolve alive and growing by passing it on to Minnesota's children in an entertaining and educational setting.
