Tribal harvest on Mille Lacs Lake


In accordance with the statements made by Chief Executive Melanie Benjamin in August 2015, the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe has not gone back on its word to forgo its right to net fish in Mille Lacs Lake this year.

Over the weekend of April 15, 16 and 17, Band members from the Mille Lacs Band, Fond du Lac Band and two Wisconsin bands were on Mille Lacs Lake exercising their rights, per a Supreme Court ruling, to spear fish. All of the fish harvested have been counted by the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission.
