Walleye Fishing

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources pays for its stocking effort with fishing license and walleye stamp dollars. This year, the process started April 8 in the Pike River near Tower.

Don’t get scammed! Anglers and hunters who buy their licenses online should do so only from the Minnesota DNR website. There are websites that claim to sell fishing and hunting licenses – and will take your money – but you may come away from the transaction with extra charges or with improper licensure.

When you buy a license online, always start at mndnr.gov/buyalicense, which will redirect you to DNR’s license vendor at jc.activeoutdoorsolutions.com.
