|Minnesota Fun Facts & Tips. |
|Minnesota is known as the Land of 10,000 lakes but did you know....|
|Minnesota's waterways are an exciting destination for boaters from all over North America, and for good reason. Whether you want to paddle your canoe down a lazy stream, guide your kayak through a raging torrent, pull the kids on an inner tube behind your boat on an inland lake, or even troll for Coho salmon on the mighty Lake Superior, you can do it all in Minnesota|
|The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is reminding boaters to take special precautions when enjoying early season boating and fishing. Even though air temperatures have been in the 70s recently, water temperatures are still bone-chilling cold.
|Minnesota's walleye stamp
You can support walleye fishing by voluntarily purchasing the Minnesota walleye stamp. Buy your stamp wherever DNR licenses are sold, including online.
Proceeds from sales of the stamp, which is not required to fish for or keep walleye, are used to maintain and enhance Minnesota's famed walleye fishing.
When you add the $5 walleye validation to your fishing license, those dollars flow into a dedicated account for walleye stocking. For $0.75 more, the DNR will mail you the actual walleye stamp as a collector's item.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources stocks walleye in about 1,000 lakes that cover roughly 1 million acres. This effort costs more than $3 million per year. Your purchase of a walleye stamp supports the purchase of fish from certified private providers.
Minnesota is blessed with about 2 million acres of walleye water, of which about one-half have strong self-sustaining walleye populations. Stocking improves fishing in walleye waters where natural reproduction occurs at only low or moderate levels.
