Anglers can't keep walleyes from Lake Mille Lacs until mid-August

Walleye bag limits on two of Minnesota's most popular fishing lakes have been cut back this year, including no keepers on Mille Lacs until at least mid-August.

The 2024 open-water regulations for Mille Lacs and Upper Red Lake go into effect May 11, the opening day of walleye and northern pike fishing statewide, the Department of Natural Resources announced Wednesday. Mille Lacs will be limited to catch-and-release until at least Aug. 16.

On Upper Red, state-licensed anglers will be allowed to keep three walleyes with only one longer than 17 inches. Starting June 15, the bag limit on Upper Red will increase to four walleyes, one longer than 17 inches.
