Gov. Tim Walz announced he is canceling his official fishing opener event this year and having it pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Walz, the fishing season will still start on May 9, 2020, but the governor’s event will be pushed back one year to May 7 to May 10, 2021.

The DNR is urging anglers to use good judgment when choosing where to fish this season.
