2022 Walleye Restrictions for Mille Lacs Lake

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will be imposing changes on Mille Lacs Lake in regards to walleye for spring and fall fishing.

Anglers at the start of the season will be able to keep one walleye 21-23 inches long or one longer than 28 inches. There will be a 2 week catch and release period in the summer before the return of the one fish limit in the fall. Also added this year, there will be an early July closure to reduce hooking mortality.

The MN DNR says that even with a drop in fall walleye catch rates in past years, more conservative harvest regulations may be needed in coming years.
