DNR releases Leech Lake 5-year management plan


ST. PAUL—A new five-year fisheries management plan for Leech Lake in northern Minnesota has been released, the Department of Natural Resources said earlier this week.

The plan covers the period 2016-2020 and outlines management objectives for primary sportfish populations, as well as steps to reach the goals, a release said.

Management actions include habitat protection, special regulations, stocking of game fish (when specified population triggers are met) and continued support for double-crested cormorant control, as well as expanded sampling for other important species such as largemouth bass and tullibee, also called cisco.
