Leech Lake-one of Minnesota's 10 large walleye lakes-has a new draft management plan and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is seeking input through Oct. 9.

The plan outlines the proposed five-year fish population objectives and fisheries management actions. It incorporates the recommendations of the 16-member Leech Lake Fisheries Input Group, which has held six meetings since February 2015.

Vist the DNR's web page at www.mndnr.gov/leechlake to submit input through Oct. 9. The Web page includes a video introduction to each survey section, information considered by the input group and the group's final report.

Paper questionnaires also are available at the DNR's Walker area fisheries office, 07316 State Highway 371 NW, Walker. Comments will be reviewed and considered in October and November. The final Leech Lake management plan will be completed in December. For more information, contact the DNR's Walker area fisheries office at 218-547-1683.
