Correcting restrictions on designated trout streams

What is this rule about?

This rule is about technical corrections to the designations of designated trout streams.

What will this rulemaking will do?

The proposed expedited rules will correct errors in the names or locations of trout streams designated in Minnesota Rules, part 6264.0050.

Some trout streams were originally designated in rule using the name of the larger river that they flow into rather than their own names. The proposed corrections list either the actual name of each such stream or, in the case where a stream has no name, list the name "unnamed stream" in the specified township, range and section.

Some trout streams had the wrong sections designated in rule, leaving gaps in designated sections of streams as well as designating sections where the named stream does not occur.

These rule amendments will help to clarify for the public which trout streams are designated as special management waters.

Who might be affected by these rule changes?

  • Trout anglers
  • Landowners affected by restrictions on activities within designated trout streams
