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.

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.
