Vermilion Lake Association

The Vermilion Lake Association has been working since its founding in 1968 to protect Lake Vermilion and to enhance the outdoor experience for those who share it.

The organization’s priority programs – aquatic invasive species (AIS) prevention and fisheries management – have been pushed to the top by today’s circumstances. In addition, its volunteers are engaged in many other community service programs to support Lake Vermilion. Taken together, they tell the full story of the Vermilion Lake Association’s strong commitment to this great lake.

New Walleye Regulations

The Minnesota DNR has announced that anglers on Lake Vermilion will be able to keep walleye up to 20 inches long, with one allowed over 26 inches, starting with the May fishing opener. The new regulation will require release of all fish from 20 to 26 inches with only one allowed over 26 inches. The four-fish bag limit will remain the same.
