Minnesota Fish Tales
Statewide Fishing Report Things are definitely in a fall transition right now on Leech Lake. With falling water temps, the walleyes have been in somewhat of a funk as they are awaiting more stable water temps and fall temperatures to move back into the shallows and begin their fall bite feed bag binge fest.
MN DNR Enforcement
CO Weekly Report (9-19) CO Ben Huener (Roseau) checked area goose and bear hunting and angling activity. Follow up work was done for some older cases. A dead elk was looked into in the Gatzke area with DNR Wildlife; no foul play was suspected. Anglers were checked on the Rainy River with CO Regas. Charges are pending for a large illegal length sturgeon that was killed and attempted to be smuggled home.
DNR Outdoor Weekly Report - (9-15) Anglers in the northern Lake Michigan counties are reporting improved success for perch and bluegill, as well as a slowed increase in walleye pressure and success. Intermittent and sporadic weather patterns over the past two weeks, in the Bay, seem to have dropped the bite for all but musky anglers, who continue to do well in the cooling waters. One other exception are those seeking walleye in Door County, were a strong and consistent evening/night bite has been reported.
MN DNR Q & A Q: If I purchase a hunting or fishing license on the DNR website, do I need to keep a printed copy with me out in the field?
A: If you’re using a home computer, you can print most licenses and need to keep a copy with you when participating in the activity. In cases where the license has a tag, the license will be mailed to you, and you must have the license in possession.
Licenses purchased on a mobile device are issued in electronic format, and you can choose to receive an email and/or text message that serves as your license. In that case, you must carry your mobile device or a printed copy of this email or text message to show proof of license.
