The province will put in place restrictions April 25 to protect walleye populations in Lake Dauphin and its tributaries, the province said today.
The temporary closure on all walleye fishing, plus limits on other tributaries during spawning season, will help fish stocks recover, the province said. This closure does not affect the harvest of other fish species.
Anyone exercising an aboriginal or treaty right to fish for food will be limited to a total of six walleye a day from all of the Wilson and Ochre rivers, and Edwards, Crooked and Mink creeks caught by angling only (rod and reel) during the spring walleye spawning period.
Restrictions on fishing during spawning reason have been put in place for the last few years.
