Temporary fishing restrictions have been put in place on Lake Dauphin to protect the walleye population.

Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship says the measures take effect immediately and are meant to protect walleye during this critical part of their lifecycle.

During this period, no commercial or recreational fishing is allowed, except for aboriginal rights holders, who may continue to harvest all species of fish by angling only and must release any walleye between 45 and 70 centimetres in length.

Once spring walleye spawning has been completed, temporary conservation measures will be lifted on the lake.
