Closed season means you cannot keep that species regardless of size during noted time frame.

Please practice C.P.R. (Catch-Photo-Release) whenever possible. In an effort to build a “trophy” fishery, requests that all muskies caught be released.

* Signifies catch and release only during time frames noted.
