Business owners thrilled about full walleye season on Mille Lacs Lake
For the first time in years, walleye fishing will be open all summer long at Mille Lacs Lake.
Resorts and bait shops are ecstatic about the potential impact on their local economy.
Mille Lacs Lake once considered itself the walleye capital of a state where walleye is part of the identity. But recent years on the lake have included serious restrictions on walleye fishing, including a total ban for two weeks in July, because their numbers got too small.
The DNR said licensed anglers will be allowed to harvest walleye 21-23 inches long or greater than 28 inches throughout the 2023 open water season on the lake.
Harvest levels for Mille Lacs Lake are set annually. The DNR’s fishing regulations on Mille Lacs Lake can be found here.
