Mille Lacs faces 3rd catch-and-release-only walleye season

Anglers and resort owners on Mille Lacs Lake will be facing a third consecutive catch-and-release-only season for walleye, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources announced Monday.

Maintaining the restriction for the open-water season that opens May 12 will let fisheries managers keep one of the state’s most popular destination lakes open to walleye fishing all year, instead of closing it entirely as they did for a month last summer, the DNR said. As in past years, night fishing for walleyes there will be prohibited after the opening weekend.
