Upper Red Lake walleye regulations announced

RED LAKE—Anglers fishing Upper Red Lake this spring will be able to keep four walleye of which only one may be longer than 17 inches, continuing the same regulation that was in place this past winter and the previous 2017 open water season, according to a Minnesota DNR release.

Harvest under the four-fish bag limit, one-over-17 regulation resulted in about 152,000 pounds for the winter season—a record high for winter harvest since reopening walleye fishing in 2006—and there remains room within the target harvest range to allow this regulation to continue into the open water season.

Red Lake's walleye harvest is managed under a joint harvest plan, revised in 2015 by the Red Lakes Fisheries Technical Committee. An Upper Red Lake Citizen Advisory Committee reviewed previous season harvest totals and regulation options and recommended continuation of the current walleye regulation for the state waters of Upper Red Lake.

The revised harvest plan recommends an aggressive approach when walleye spawning stock is in surplus, as it currently is.

Adjustments to size or bag limits may be needed in the future if the spawning stock needs more protection

Sounds like they learned something from the  Mille Lacs experience.
