Lake Waconia has the pleasure of hosing the 2012 Governor’s Fishing Opener on May 12th!
A pair of accomplished anglers from Waconia will host Governor Mark Dayton and Lt. Governor Yvonne Prettner Solon on Lake Waconia. Travis Frank will fish with Governor Dayton, and Matt Peters will fish with Lt. Governor Prettner Solon.
This is only the second time in 64 years that a lake in the meto region has been selected for the Governor’s Fishing Opener and we can’t wait for everyone to hit town.
Even though not everyone will get to fish with the Governor, everyone is free to come to town and fish on Lake Waconia.
If you live in Waconia, get ready for a media frenzy and tons of anglers to pack the town.
