The Governor Plans an Early Fish

Time will tell if the fish will cooperate when the walleye and northern season begins Saturday morning.  But, population numbers are good, according to DNR Fish and Wildlife Outreach Chief C.B. Bylander.

Bylander says 1.5 million licenses will be issued this year.  The economic impact will be $2.8 billion a year, which he says makes a huge difference in rural areas.

Bylander says this weekend's fishing prospects could be difficult, because water temperatures are cold from the late ice-out and cool spring.

Bylander is accompanying Mark Dayton for the annual Governor's Opener in Grand Rapids.  He says the Governor is planning on taking to the water at 12:01 a.m.
