We mailed out letters to licensed anglers during December of 2009.
Northern pike experimental regulations are in place on Big Birch, Big Swan, and Long (Burtrum) Lakes. The regulations are slot limits that require anglers to release pike between 24 and 36". The goal of the regulation is to improve the size structure of northern pike.
Minnesota Dept. of Natural Resources, Little Falls Area Fisheries conducted a survey to assess angler attitudes about northern pike experimental fishing regulations.
Please see the report below. Let us know if there are questions.
