Protect, Respect and Enjoy the Red Lake Walleye Into the Future!

Lake sturgeon were found throughout the reservation waters of Upper and Lower Red Lake by 2010 and will likely be observed by State anglers shortly. Four age classes are currently present and the largest sturgeon caught and released to date was 26 inches in 2010. Currently, both on and off the reservation, sturgeon are fully protected and must be returned upon capture. However, we would greatly appreciate pictures, lengths and location of capture of any sturgeon that is captured in the Red Lakes or its tributaries to document range expansion and success of this effort.
