Bemidji Pioneer: Upper Red Lake walleye regulations announced

RED LAKE—Anglers fishing Upper Red Lake this spring will be able to keep four walleye of which only one may be longer than 17 inches, continuing the same regulation that was in place this past winter and the previous 2017 open water season, according to a Minnesota DNR release.

Harvest under the four-fish bag limit, one-over-17 regulation resulted in about 152,000 pounds for the winter season—a record high for winter harvest since reopening walleye fishing in 2006—and there remains room within the target harvest range to allow this regulation to continue into the open water season.
