    Upper Red Lake walleye regulation changed
    Location: Minnesota

    The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is reminding anglers that walleye regulations have changed for the winter at Upper Red Lake. The slot reverted back to a 17-to 26-inch protected slot limit beginning Dec. 1 and running through the winter walleye season.

    The daily and possession limit will remain at four fish, with only one fish more than 26 inches allowed.

    The winter adjustment back to the 17-to 26-inch protected range is a necessary step for harvest management because winter angling pressure on Upper Red has been consistently higher than open water pressure. Walleye abundance remains high and good numbers of fish shorter than 17 inches are present for harvest.

    Red Lake walleye regulations are not specifically listed in the Minnesota Fishing Regulations booklet since they are subject to revision based on seasonal harvest estimates. This year is the second year of consistent open water and winter harvest regulations for walleye as DNR works toward a citizen advisory committee objective of regulation stability.
