The City of North St. Paul encompasses two lakes: Casey Lake and Silver Lake.
Casey Lake is located off 17th Ave. E. and provides community access via Casey Lake Park. Casey Lake is managed with a partnership between the City of North St. Paul, the Ramsey Washington Watershed District, and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
Casey Lake is shallow but can provide some fun shore fishing action for the panfish that are annually stocked into the lake. While fishing, you can enjoy the shoreline restoration that was constructed along the edge of the latke to help intercept nutrients in runoff before they enter the lake.
The Ramsey Washington Metro Watershed District and the University of Minnesota are working on a project to eliminate Common Carp from Casey Lake which should help improve water quality in this lake and in the downstream lakes such as Kohlman and Gervais.
Silver Lake is located south of 1-694 along Century Ave. in North St. Paul. Community access to Silver Lake is available from
Silver Lake Park and Dorothy Park in North St. Paul, and Joy Park in Maplewood.
The lake has several options for shore anglers. Joy Park, operated by the City of Maplewood at the north end of the lake, contains a fishing pier and additional shore fishing sites.
The City of North St. Paul operates Silver Lake on the south end of the lake. This park also has a fishing pier, a public beach, plus additional shoreline available to anglers.
Silver Lake Park is managed with a partnership between the City of North St. Paul, the City of Maplewood, the Ramsey Washington Watershed District, the Valley Branch Watershed District, and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
