Lake Benton Minnesota Fishing

Fishing

The fishery of Lake Benton is spectacular and primarily managed for walleye and secondarily for northern pike, black crappie, bluegill and yellow perch. While the population is dominated by younger walleye, growth is good, which allows the size structure of the population to be in a balanced state.


From a boat or just off the dock, you will be sure to enjoy your fishing adventures on one of Minnesota's most beautiful lakes!
