Upper Red Lake's relaxed walleye bag limit could be fleeting

 

Dennis Anderson, Star Tribune

Aaron Hobbs of the Twin Cities area was helped during the fishing opener on Upper Red Lake in May by his son, Erik, 3, as together they showed off one of the walleyes they boated. State fisheries managers are leaning heavily toward a tighter walleye bag limit on Upper Red for the coming winter.

Good walleye fishing this summer on Upper Red Lake won't push the season's harvest beyond what is considered safe or sustainable, but state fisheries managers are leaning heavily toward a tighter walleye bag limit for the coming winter.

Gary Barnard, Bemidji-area fisheries supervisor for the Department of Natural Resources, said this week that the agency will be meeting with the lake's citizen advisory group to discuss the potential change.
