Bemidji Pioneer: Plan for Upper Red Lake continues to pay off

UPPER RED LAKE—Among the success stories in Minnesota fish management is Red Lake and this summer anglers who fish Upper Red will, once again, reap the benefits.

"We just had a record winter harvest of 152,000 pounds and we think we should have another good harvest this summer," said Bemidji Area DNR Fisheries large lake specialist Tony Kennedy. "Our harvest year runs from December through November and (during that span) we have a target harvest range of 240,000 pounds to 336,000 pounds. A good summer harvest is about 100,000 pounds so, when you add that to our winter harvest of 152,000 pounds, we are on track to be within that harvest range."
