Time to remove Minnesota fish houses

Deadlines to remove fish houses are inching closer for the northern third of Minnesota.
The dates will not be extended. Make sure you meet these removal deadlines. Act now!
Deadline is end of the day Monday, March 18, for northern Minnesota inland waters.
Deadline is the end of the day Sunday, March 31, for Minnesota-Canadian border waters, including Lake of the Woods.
If shelters aren’t removed by the deadline, owners may be prosecuted and structures may be confiscated and removed, or destroyed by a conservation officer.
Heavy snow during February has created challenging conditions on lakes throughout the state. Don't wait until the last minute to remove your fish house. Connect with a plow service, or ask friends and family for help.
You have a big role to play in keeping our state’s lakes clean. In addition to removing your fish house, be sure to pick up all trash and bring it off the lake with you – even if it isn’t yours.
