The 70th annual Governors Fishing Opener will take place May 11-14 on the Mississippi River. The cities of St. Cloud, Sartell, and Sauk Rapids will be involved. In Sartell, the designated area for the opener will be between Mississippi River County Park and the Sartell Dam. There is great fishing to be had along the river. Pictured is Dr. Mike Svensson of Sartell who while fishing for pike during the summer of 2016, caught this handsome fellow instead.
