From the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources - May 12, 2023

What do you think about being able to fish for bass year-round? We’re gauging whether such a change would sit well with the majority of Minnesota anglers. What are your thoughts on a catch-and-release season on inland waters that would last from the current closure, typically the last Sunday in February, through the current fishing opener, defined as the Saturday two weeks prior to Memorial Day weekend?

More information and a questionnaire can be found on our DNR public engagement platform.
