Diamond Lake Open for Liberalized Fishing

Diamond Lake, south of Leech Lake in Cass County, will be opened to liberalized fishing through October 19th.
The lake has been managed for rainbow trout since 1967. However, the lake has become over-run with undesirable fish that compete with the trout. As a result, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will kill all species prior to restocking.
In May, the DNR plans to stock 7,000 rainbow trout yearlings, 9-11 inches long, to provide angling opportunity for the 2009 season. Annual stocking of 14,000 fall fingerling rainbow trout will begin in October 2009.
Through October 19th, fish may be taken in any quantity.
Fish may be taken by spear, gill net, or angling.
The trout stamp requirement is being waived during the liberalized season. However, a regular fishing license is required.
For more information, contact the Walker Area DNR Fisheries office at 218-681-1683.
