Statewide Fishing Report On the transition from summer to fall, the walleyes will be more scattered throughout the water column. Mostly looking for that 18’-22’ on quick dropping bars, shelves, and flats. This gives the walleyes a choice of either deeper feeding or shallow feeding in the weeds.

CO Weekly Report (8-22) CO Nicholas Prachar (Baudette) worked angling activity on Lake of the Woods, ATV activity and Bear Baiting activity in Beltrami Island State Forest. CO Prachar received a call of a potential boating violation with juveniles. Prachar responded and found that the young man of the group had a boat operator’s permit and that there were no other violations. Please ensure that operators of recreational vehicles and boats have taken the appropriate safety training courses for the activity they are participating in.
DNR Outdoor Weekly Report - (8-25) Fishing pressure on lower Green Bay remained very high this week due to the outstanding walleye fishing that is going on, with multiple reports of limits being caught in a couple hours of fishing. Anglers were also reporting excellent walleye fishing along the Door County shoreline of Green Bay. Yellow perch fishing still remains good in the Sturgeon Bay area with most success occurring near deep weed lines.
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.
