Changes made to fishing regulations

ST. PAUL — Special fishing regulations will change on 17 Minnesota lakes and one trout stream in March, while existing special rules will become permanent on five other lakes around the state.
The changes mostly affect smaller lakes where fisheries managers are trying to rebuild walleye populations or grow bigger sunfish.
In other waters, including popular Rainy Lake on the Canadian border in northeastern Minnesota, special walleye or bass restrictions are being relaxed to provide more harvest opportunities.
