At the National Eagle Center, kids fish for free when they fish for eagles! We’ve got the fishing poles, lifejackets, bait and a dock out front. Sign out the equipment and take your kids fishing right here! Kids 15 and under can fish without a license.* Best of all they can donate their catch to feed the bald eagle ambassadors. Fishing for eagle program is free with paid admission to the National Eagle Center. Plan your visit to include an afternoon of Fishing for Eagles!

We just wrapped up a great summer 2014 season – thanks to all the families who participated. See you next summer!

*Children 15 and under who are residents of Minnesota do not need a license. Non-residents need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian with a valid MN fishing license.

Participation in Fishing for Eagles is free with paid admission to the National Eagle Center, during valid program hours. Credit card required to check out equipment. Lost or damaged equipment may be subject to charges. Participants agree to adhere to all Minnesota fishing and water safety rules.
