Winter Walleye Regulations Changing on Upper Red Lake


October 26, 2022

(KNSI) – Ice anglers will get to keep one less walleye while fishing on Upper Red Lake this winter.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says starting Tuesday, November 1st, regulations will change from a daily limit of four walleyes to three. Only one fish over 17 inches long can be kept.

Officials say the lake’s fall fisheries assessment showed a healthy population of mature females resulting in a moderate amount of harvesting this year. Last winter, the DNR said there was an abundance of walleye in the lake, so anglers were allowed to keep more fish.
