Welcome to Alexandria, in the heart of Douglas County, near the home of the Kensington Runestone. After 15 years of remarkable success, and one year that we all want to forget, we have some more big events planned for the summer of 2023.
Let’s Go Fishing is a non-profit organization (incorporated in Minnesota as a 501c3) whose principal objective is to provide community seniors, veterans, disabled, and youth with fishing and boating excursions at no cost. The mission of Let’s Go Fishing is to give back to community seniors some small token of appreciation for all they have done to build the community we so often take for granted. We want to provide seniors with an opportunity to spend quality time on Douglas County lakes, with friends, families, and acquaintances that will create memories that will last a lifetime – for the seniors and for all the volunteers.
The Let’s go Fishing program is for all seniors, veterans, persons with disabilities, and youth. The Let’s Go Fishing pontoons are specially designed to provide full accessibility for guests. The pontoons have been designed to accommodate guests by having higher rails, captain’s chairs, and wider door access to accommodate wheelchairs. We provide everything necessary for a fishing or boating tour, including rods, reels, bait, life preservers, and beverages. The only thing you need, if you want to fish, is a Minnesota Fishing License .**
The boating excursions are led by volunteers of the community who are experienced and who have completed the safety courses required by Let’s Go Fishing. We are always looking for more volunteers!
* All donations to the Let’s Go Fishing program are 100% tax deductible.
** Senior residents of certified assisted living facilities and/or nursing homes do not require a Minnesota fishing license.
