BWCA and Inland Lakes Fishing Opener Preview

Fishing Opener is here.

There was great angst among many who fish in and around the Boundary Waters in the weeks leading up to the Minnesota Fishing Opener. The opener is Saturday, May 13. Some of the larger lakes, including Clearwater, Duncan, Seagull, and Brule, could be holding some ice on the opener. Other lakes, including Round, Caribou, and Deer Yard Lake, will be open by Saturday morning.

On this episode of the podcast, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Conversation Officer Kylan Hill talks with WTIP’s Joe Friedrichs about the 2023 Fishing Opener.
