DNR Hydrography - Trout Lake Designation

This layer shows <b>legally designated trout lakes</b> as identified in <b>Minnesota Rules Chapter 6264.0050</b>. These are inland lakes managed by DNR Fisheries for trout species (not including lake trout). In order to protect and foster the propagation of trout species, several restrictions on fishing in these lakes apply. See <b>MN Rules 6264.0050</b> http://www.revisor.leg.state.mn.us/arule/6264/0050.html for legal descriptions and restrictions associated with designated trout waters. <br/><br/>For more information about lakes managed for trout species, see the following: <br/><br/><b>Trout Lakes: </b> http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/fishing/trout_lakes/index.html<br/><b>Trout Lakes List</b> (list of trout species x lake): http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/fishing/trout_lakes/list.html<br/><br/>Note: In addition to Designated Trout Lakes, <v>Stream Trout Lakes</b> are specifically managed for stream trout species (<i>i.e., rainbow trout, brook trout, brown trout and splake</i>), although they are <u>not</u> an official designation in MN Rules.
