Catch and release only for Mille Lacs walleye this summer, DNR announces


Anglers looking for walleye on Mille Lacs Lake must use artificial bait and immediately release all walleye caught during this year's summer season, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources announced Monday.

The season opens May 14.

"A catch-and-release walleye season allows us to protect future spawners, yet acknowledges the desire that fishing remain open," said Don Pereira, DNR fisheries chief, in a news release. "Not allowing harvest is a difficult decision, but it provides our best option."
