MADISON — Non-tribal anglers will only be allowed to harvest a single walleye per day on 173 lakes in northern Wisconsin.

The state Department of Natural Resources announced the limit Monday. The agency makes its determination based on how many walleyes the stateís six Chippewa tribes set as a goal for themselves.

The tribes said last month their goal is to take more than 63,000 walleyes. Thatís six percent higher than the previous record goal from 2010. However, the tribes generally only harvest about half their goal, and the DNR adjusts its bag limits accordingly.

Federal treaties allow the Chippewa to hunt and fish in millions of northern Wisconsin acres.

DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp says the agency is working to improve stocking efforts and fish habitats to encourage long-term walleye population growth.
