Anglers on Lake Mille Lacs will have an opportunity to keep some walleye during the open-water fishing season this year.
This follows several seasons of catch-and-release fishing on the lake.
Last year, state anglers stayed well under the lake’s safe-harvest allocation for walleyes. With an improving walleye population, the Department of Natural Resources will allow some walleye harvest when the season opens May 11.
