Fishing is Better Here!
Red Lake is Open for Walleye
Stay at Northshore Bay Resort and Fish Red Lake - Just 40 minutes Away!
decade after the Red Lake walleye fishery was closed to anglers it will
once again offer the opportunity to fish its waters for Minnesota's
state fish - the walleye. Lake-wide assessment data
continues to indicate very promising progress towards walleye
recovery. Walleye abundance has increased dramatically from the
mid-1990's when the walleye population crashed. Walleye fry
stocked in 1999, 2001 and 2003 as part of the recovery plan have
established a large population of young fish. Recent DNR test netting
indicates the stocking of 41 million walleye fry in 1999 was a huge
success. So was the stocking of 32 million fry in 2001. Fry
stocking in 2003 contributed greatly as well. Now these fish are mature and contributing
to natural reproduction.
regulations for the 2016 open-water season are a continuation of the
tightened regulations. Implemented during the winter of 2015-2016, a
three-fish bag limit for walleye is now in place with no more than one
fish over 17 inches allowed in possession. These regulations are
necessary to comply with the Harvest Plan for Red Lakes walleye between
the State of Minnesota and the Red Lake Nation.
Northshore Bay Resort is located just 40 minutes from Red Lake. Stay with us and fish Red!
