NEW BRIGHTON, Minnesota — The Department of Natural Resources hosts a public discussion Thursday about walleye reproduction in Mille Lacs Lake.

The presentation and discussion will run from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the New Brighton Community Center at 400 10th St. NW .

The DNR says the "Hooked on Mille Lacs" event is intended to share biological information and answer citizens' questions related to past, present and future walleye reproduction in one of Minnesota's most popular fisheries.

Fisheries managers are trying to gain a better understanding of why Mille Lacs' walleye population is at a 40-year-low. A major problem is the vast majority of hatchlings don't survive to their second autumn.

The DNR has imposed tight regulations to try to help the walleye population recover, but recently lifted a night fishing ban.
