Fishing for Eagles

This summer 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. We’re offering fun for the whole family to experience all summer long, so plan your visit to include an afternoon of Fishing for Eagles!

Wednesdays and Thursdays, 12-4pm … June 18th through August 28th!

Special Kick Off Event and Bald Eagle Day Celebration!

*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. If parent assists the child by touching the pole, casting or taking fish off the hook, it is considered angling, and the parent does need a valid MN fishing license from the MN DNR. 

Participation in Fishing for Eagles is free with paid admission to the National Eagle Center. Program runs June 18th through August 28th. 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.
