District 4 - Walker area

Last updated: 2018-05-23

CO Mark Mathy (Cass Lake) primarily checked anglers and aquatic invasive species. A group of anglers were found to have several illegal length walleye because of an observant person who called in a tip. Assistance was provided at a rescue/recovery when kayakers were flipped out of their kayak on a day with strong winds. Other calls of fish over-limits and unregistered boats were investigated. Enforcement action was taken for ATV, AIS, and angling violations.

CO Chelsey Best (Remer) investigated a double tripping TIP in the Remer station. CO Best attended court for a case from last winter on Leech Lake. Enforcement action was taken this week for snorkels on ATVs, illegal operation on a highway, no safety certificate, and violations of the new northern pike laws.

CO Colleen Adam (Park Rapids) responded to injured and nuisance wildlife calls, investigated aquatic vegetation removal, prohibited materials burning barrel fire, and report of over-limit walleyes. CO Adam checked area fishing activity and assisted the county with a search.
