FISHING OPENER: A turnaround for Upper Red Lake


RED LAKE -- During the past 15 years, the walleye fishery on Upper Red Lake has completed a 180-degree turn-around. In the late 1990s, walleyes, especially spawning-age walleyes, were so scarce in Upper and Lower Red Lake that state and tribal officials were forced to impose a 10-year ban on any walleye harvest.

During that time, fisheries officials also planned to implement a comprehensive recovery plan that would include extensive fry stocking and continual monitoring of the plan’s progress.
