Pool 4

5 posts in this topic

I have never fished any of the pools but was wondering about pool 4 in particular. Is this catch and release or are the fish (Walleye) ok to eat? Just curious.

The fish consumption advisory is located here http://www.health.state.mn.us/divs/eh/fish/eating/missrivergp.pdf

I general don't eat Walleyes over 25" or have more than 4 meals a month.

The department of health's general information can be found here http://www.health.state.mn.us/divs/eh/fish/eating/sitespecific.html

Open season year round. Limit is 6 and minimum size on walleye is 15". And the fish are OK to eat. Note of caution. There are a lot of saugeye in the system and The DNR hasn't made it clear what constitutes a wally versus sauger versus saugeye. You can keep 14" sauger but you had best be sure of it.
