Fish

You'll find almost every kind of freshwater fish in the St. Croix River, one of the healthiest bodies of water in the US. In addition, world class fishing lakes dot the countryside, hosting an abundance of hotspots for muskies, trout, panfish and bass. More than 700,000 trout are released annually into our lakes from two fish hatcheries.
