Anglers asked to keep close to home, beware AIS, this opener

Beltrami County reminds boaters to practice best management practices for preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species.

Anglers across the state are being urged by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to spend the fishing opener close to home.

Bruce Anspach, aquatic invasive species lake technician for Beltrami County, says this time of the season there is a low chance of spreading AIS, except in muddy areas.

Keep on the lookout for mud and other foreign materials hitching a ride on boats and trailers.
