Angling prospects for walleye look favorable in 2016. There are good numbers of 13-17 inch walleye in the population, especially on East Vermilion. Prospects for catching quality sized fish (over 18 inches) are also favorable, especially on West Vermilion where there are still good numbers of fish in the population from strong year classes produced in 2007, 2002 and 2003. However, most of these fish are over 18 inches and must be released in order to comply with the special regulation on Lake Vermilion.
A special walleye regulation was implemented on Lake Vermilion in 2006; a 18-26 inch protected slot, with one fish allowed over 26 inches, and a 4-fish bag limit. MnDNR
