Catch-and-Release Walleye Season on Mille Lacs Lake Resumes Saturday
Since the beginning of July, walleye fishing has been prohibited on Mille Lacs Lake. That restriction will remain in place until tomorrow, July 16th, when the catch-and-release season can resume.
Anglers can scratch their walleye itch for 7 weeks. Anglers are encouraged to catch as many walleye as they’d like, so long as the fish are thrown back immediately. The season will end on Wednesday, August 31st.
If you’re hoping to keep something you catch, don’t worry. After the catch-and-release season, a one-fish walleye limit is scheduled to resume Thursday, September 1st and continue through Wednesday, November 30th.
Fishing hours on Mille Lacs Lake are 6 AM to 10 PM for all species.
