Trout fishing regulations - HELP!

4 posts in this topic

Can somebody please verify the trout fishing regulations in tributaries of Lake Superior? The way I read them, fishing rainbows in any rivers/streams dumping into Superior is catch and release only above the falls. For example, Knife River above Co Rd 9 looks like it has rainbows, but is catch and release only - any help?

Thanks

I understand the closed season regulations - just looking for help on the rainbow trout interpretation...

the rainbows above the boundary are juvenile steelhead and need to be released. i don't have the manual in front of me but I believe a rainbow needs to be 15 inches long and have a clipped adipose fin. any rainbows above the posted boundary are catch and release only, and the upper stretches above the boundary are now closed.
