Minnesota’s fishing opener is less than one week from today.(May 15th)  The DNR’s Nancy Stewart says public accesses are ready to go:

“Pretty much have our 1,685 DNR managed access sites ready. You know I think actually most of them are ready now even. So our normal kind of goal date is fishing opener but with the great weather we’ve had, we are good to go.”

Fishing license sales are also way up this year heading into next weekend’s opener.
