When is the Border water opener?

8 posts in this topic

I checked the MN DNR site, but it only states when the regular season starts.

I am assuming it's either April 21 or the 28th.

Rost---

Canada/Minnesota is May 13

Iowa/Minnesota is April 28

Wisonsin/Minnesota is April 28

South Dakota/Minnesota is April 21

These are on Page 45 I believe is where they start in the 07 regs book (online anyway)

Where did you get the 21st?

In the 2007 fishing handbook page 51 it says April 28?

I just looked again, page 51 says the 21st, I know last year it was a week later...on the regs book I downloaded it has the dates highlighted in yellow....

Just checked the south dakota regs and they say the 21st as well

did you look at the online version? That is what I was looking at, if you have the hard copy I wonder which one is correct?

I just sent an email to the dnr, my hard copy version says the 28th...hopefully they will be able to clear it up...

I am looking at the hard copy! I just got back from town and getting another to see what it says and it also says April 28!

I would think the hard copy is right as it was just sent out last week according to the bait shop i was at!

Let me know what the dnr says!

I definitly will, once I get the response I will post it.

This just in from the DNR---

They just passed emergency rules to change it to the 21st. We try to update the online regulations to help customers, it's too late to fix the printed copy. There will be an announcement or news release, but probably a little closer to the opening date.

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

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.
