In waters entirely within state parks, fishing for fish only is permitted when conforming to Minnesota laws and rules. Taking of minnows, turtles, frogs, mussels, and other aquatic life other than fish is prohibited. When spear fishing or bow and arrow fishing is permitted, the restriction on spears or bows and arrows is waived to the extent necessary to allow the activity.
In a state park, forest campground, or forest day use area, if a fish-cleaning facility is provided, no person shall clean fish and dispose of the remains except at that facility. In state parks, if a fish cleaning facility is not provided, fish cleaning shall take place only in areas or sites approved by the park manager.
