Sand, Bowstring and Round Lakes Northern Population

1 post in this topic

All summer we have been accepting input for a DNR proposed special regulation for Sand, Bowstring and Round Lakes in Itasca County. The proposed regulation is a slot limit of 22" to 36" with 1 over 36" able to be kept. In addition, the possession limit would be raised from current 3 to proposed 9. This is in effort to reduce the number of small pike as well as giving anglers the opportunity to keep plenty of fish to make it worth their while to assist in this effort. No, this is not a knee jerk reaction to help the walleye population although it will take some pressure off walleye over the years. This is a 10 year experimental program which can be extended or eliminated based on scientific data at any time. If you would like to comment on this proposed regulation please contact Chris Kavenaugh, Area Fisheries Manager in Grand Rapids MN. His phone number is 218-999-7821. His email is

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
