Let's Go Fishing

Let's Go Fishing was created to enrich the lives of people age 55 and older through free fishing and boating excursions that strengthen communities, build relationships and create memories.

Fishing and boating is such a common past-time for Minnesotans and we may often take for granted how easy it is for many of us to enjoy our state's beautiful lakes and rivers. LGF returns the outdoor experience to those whom might not otherwise have the opportunity to fish, boat or enjoy time with friends on the water. Since our inception in 2002, we have served over 40,000 seniors, youth, veterans and disabled adults. Today 26 LGF chapters exist throughout Minnesota

For our guests, LGF is more than just an opportunity to go fishing. Our program returns a sense of freedom to the lives of our guests, provides a safe opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, and offers time to socialize with peers and meet new friends. Thanks to the dedication of nearly 1,400 volunteers LGF is successfully bringing communities together and enhancing the lives of thousands of Minnesotans.

Each year we see a growing demand from individuals, organizations and communities for our services. As we look to the future, we hope to bring our unique program to new communities throughout Minnesota and beyond. With your help we can continue to bring joy to the lives of thousands of individuals.
