New crappie, sunfish regulations announced for Inguadona and Rice lakes near Longville

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Commissioner Mark Holsten recently approved new special fishing regulations for Inguadona and Rice lakes, located near Longville in Cass County.

The new regulations, scheduled to take effect April 1, change possession limits on both lakes from 10 crappie and 20 sunfish to five crappie and 10 sunfish.

The new rules, which have broad support from local anglers and the lake association, will maintain or improve the average size of crappies and sunfish available for anglers by preventing over-harvest of larger fish.

Questions regarding the special regulations may be directed to Harlan Fierstine, Walker area fisheries supervisor, at 218-547-1683 or
