Cass Lake, one of Minnesota's 10 large walleye lakes, has a new draft management plan and the DNR is seeking input on it.

The plan outlines the proposed five-year fish population objectives and fisheries management actions for Cass Lake and connected waters on the Cass Lake Chain.

The plan incorporates recommendations from a 14-member Cass Lake Fisheries Input Group, which included representation from resorts, residents and lake associations on Cass Lake and connected waters, angling groups, fish species workgroups, Leech Lake Reservation Department of Resource Management, Chippewa National Forest and the Cass Lake Chamber.

People can view the plan at mndnr.gov/casslake/index.html. They will be able to comment online or pick up a paper questionnaire at the Bemidji Area Fisheries Office. The final plan will be completed in October.
