Comments: Pickerel Lake offers shorefishing and non-motorized boat angling opportunities. The aquatic vegetation can become quite dense in the summer so early season fishing is probably best from the shore. The City of St. Paul manages a carry-in boat access site for watercraft users. Various river fish species are commonly caught due to a connection with the Mississippi River.
