Catch and Release
All walleye over 19.5 inches must be returned to the water immediately during the period March 1 through April 14.  Mortality is low for walleye if proper handling techniques are used.  Studies by natural resource agencies have shown survival rates between 70% and 100% for released fish.  Walleye survival during cold water periods can approach 100%.


To ensure that the fish you release survive, follow these simple guidelines:

1.  Use barbless hooks
2.  Set the hook quickly
3.  Play the fish quickly
4.  Hold the fish firmly, but gently, while removing the hook
5.  Use the needle nose pliers to remove the hooks
6.  Cut the line if the fish is throat hooked
7.  Gently slide the fish into the water
