Special and experimental regulations meetings

Reviews of existing or newly proposed regulations on 18 lakes and one river will be the subject of 11 public meetings conducted across the state in the coming weeks by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

The goal of experimental and special regulations on individual waters is to expand opportunities for anglers to experience quality fishing that can be sustained in light of increasing angling pressure and improved angler efficiency. During the past 30 years, fisheries managers have monitored a variety of regulations across Minnesota.
