STATEMENT FROM REP. ERICKSON ON MILLE LACS LAKE 2016 WALLEYE QUOTA


PRINCETON, MN—State Representative Sondra Erickson, R-Princeton, issued the following statement after news today that the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will keep this year’s walleye season open on Mille Lacs Lake despite the weight quota being reached.

 

“I am pleased that the Governor and DNR will allow catch-and-release walleye fishing on Mille Lacs to remain open for the remainder of the season,” said Erickson. “This decision will benefit communities around the lake as we look to maintain and strengthen our local economy. I look forward to continuing my work with the DNR and local groups to ensure that the lake’s walleye fishery is strong for years to come.”

 

Erickson represents District 15A which includes the southern portion of Mille Lacs Lake.
