Walleye Fishing

Lake Minnetonka Walleye

Lake Minnetonka is stocked with walleye every other year.  The state fish (walleye) can be found throughout the lake on rocks, along deep weedlines and shallow during low light periods.  Spring and fall fishing are great times to set out in search of our state fish. During winter months walleyes can be a great target through the ice.
