The Minnesota DNR is asking anglers to give input on several special fishing regulation proposals for the following waters:

  • Walleye in Big Sandy Lake in Aitkin County.
  • Panfish in Dyers Lake in Cook County and Sand Lake in Lake County.
  • Lake trout in Caribou Lake in Itasca County.
  • Walleye in Island and Round lakes in Itasca County.

Find out more details about these proposals and share your thoughts via an online survey. You can also check out the details for each of these regulation proposals or attend an in-person open house scheduled about these proposals. If enacted, the proposed regulations would go into effect for the 2023 fishing season.

Give your opinion at dnr.state.mn.us/fishing/special-fishing-regulations-input.html or attend in-person meetings in coming months.

Dates and locations are available at dnr.state.mn.us/regulations/fishing/fishing-regulations-meetings.html .
