DNR Says Streams In Good Shape For Opener

2 posts in this topic

Minnesota streams in good shape for statewide stream trout opener.

Trout anglers likely will find good fishing conditions when streams open statewide April 18 for trout fishing.

“Trout populations are generally in good shape in the southeast streams,” said Mark Ebbers, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) trout and salmon program consultant. “In many streams, adult populations are at the same level as they were before the flood in 2007.”

Anglers can find trout stream locations online. Specific information on the Whitewater River, a popular trout fishing destination in southeastern Minnesota, is available online.

Trout streams with special regulations are listed in the DNR’s 2009 Fishing Regulations booklet.

Anglers fishing for stream trout must possess a trout stamp validation in addition to a regular fishing or combination license. Licenses and trout stamps purchased in 2008 expire at midnight on April 30. The trout stamp validation costs $10.

“Purchasing trout stamps is an investment in Minnesota’s cold water fisheries,” Ebbers said. “Funds raised through the program go directly to benefit trout habitat.”
