0-20 inches and one over 28 inches. You can keep a total of 4 with only one being over 28. 20-28 have to be released.

I think these are the same as last year. Also, I believe they will decrease the slot to 22 inches some time in late June.

Please correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks!

that is correct. I am not sure when they change the slot to 22", but late June early July. Same as last year. Good luck. grin.gif

Just a thought...please make sure you measure in a trough or use a tape just to make sure of the length for slot limit purposes.

If it is like every other opener(or weekend during the summer for that matter)there will be DNR officals asking to see catches, and taking surveys at the landings(public and resort).

The possibilty of a fine can make a fishing trip a real bummer. Good luck to all and please be safe!

Darn good point Irish, and a legal measurement is with the mouth closed and the tail pinched. The longest measurement. they will enforce this.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
