Announcing our Walleye Conservation Policy

For many of you Eagle Falls Lodge is more than a destination.  It is more than six nights at the end of the road. It’s more than endless fishing, shore lunches, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and the scent of mosquito coils.

For Travis, and for me, and for many of you (we hope!) it is about tradition.  It’s about coming home.  We have come to hope that it is the very best part of your year.

In efforts to preserve the tradition of Eagle Falls Lodge we are excited to share with you all our new Walleye Conservation Policy.  This policy has been put in place to support and uphold the long standing tradition of Red Lake and Parker Lake having phenomenal walleye fishing for each and every guest in the past, the present, and the future.

So what exactly is this Walleye Conservation Policy?

Starting in 2015 all walleye caught over 18 inches must be released immediately.

After many hours of research and discussions with conservation officers, biologists, and other camp owners we are convinced this new policy can take Red Lake & Parker Lake to new levels of production.  We firmly believe that Red Lake and Parker Lake continue to be excellent walleye fisheries and we are so excited to see them reach untapped potential with increased conservation practices.  

We discuss the important of releasing big fish on our website here.  And we look forward to answering any questions you may have about this new policy.

How great is it that you get to join us in preserving the tradition of Eagle Falls Lodge, the tradition that each of us has come to know and love and expect when we arrive at the end of the road?

We think it’s pretty darn great.

    I think it is a great idea and will help keep the big fish genetics in the lake so they can continue to breed and produce other big fish.

    When I catch the 30+” walleye that grows out of the 26″ one that gets let go next summer thanks to this conservation policy then I will get a replica made which lasts for generations and generations!
