The 2017 season for the sport-reward fishery will start at all stations on May 1, 2017. The season will end September 30, 2017.
For every qualifying Northern Pikeminnow 9 inches or longer returned to a registration station, anglers will receive $5-$8. The more fish an angler catches, the more they're worth: the first 25 in one season are worth $5 each; after 25, they're worth $6 each; and after 200 they're worth $8 each. Special tagged Northern Pikeminnow will be worth $500 again this year.
