Lake trout season studied
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is proposing to adopt regulations that would extend the Lake Superior lake trout season.
Lake trout fishing currently closes on Sept. 30, reopening Dec. 1. Under the proposal, the lake trout season on Lake Superior would be extended through the first full weekend of October.
The DNR is seeking comments on the proposed regulation change. Deadline for comments is Dec. 22. Comments can be made online by visiting the DNR web page at www.dnr.state. mn.us/input/rules/fisheries-expedited/index.html.
