Saturday Fishing Opener, Sunday Mother's Day

As so often happens in Minnesota, the fishing opener and Mother's Day coincide again this year.  We wish the best of luck to all the anglers and a very happy Mothers Day to all mothers.

A few reminders for everyone at the start of this busy season on the lake:
  • Be aware of the damage invasive species can do to a lake and please be vigilant to help keep Long Lake free of Zebra Mussels and other forms of aquatic invasive species.  Please clean, drain, and dry your boats.  We're very fortunate here in the Park Rapids area to have a handy and free decontamination station.  Information and a map to the location can be found on our Watercraft Decontamination Information page:  Watercraft Decontamination Information Page
  • A copy of fishing regulations for the 2017 season can be found on the Minnesota DNR's website here:  2017 Minnesota Fishing Regulations
  • Remember that LLAA's "Kids Fishing Contest" ends June 22nd at 10pm.  Be sure to get your entries in so they can be posted before the LLAA Annual Meeting which is on Saturday June 24th.  There have been eight entries so far this year.  Three lucky winners will be drawn at the meeting.  Check out the Kids Fishing Contest Page for all the details of the contest and to see the entries.
A new fishing contest will be announced at the LLAA Annual Meeting and we will post about it later on the website.  This new challenge will be for adults.
