Which Fish Species Are The First To Spawn Here In Minnesota In The Spring

Northern pike usually spawn first when water temperatures are in the low 40’s. There is often still ice on the main lakes when pike run into tributary streams, rivers or wetlands to spawn. Walleye spawn a bit later, followed by yellow perch, muskellunge, bass and crappie/bluegill. Henry Drewes, DNR regional fisheries manager.
