Late Memorial Day weekend delays walleye fishing opener
Minnesota's 2010 walleye opener will be Saturday, May 15, one a week later than usual.
State law sets the walleye opener two Saturdays prior to Memorial Day weekend, which does not occur until the last weekend of May this year.
The later start means that the walleye opener will not coincide with Mother's Day weekend, which will be Saturday, May 8, and Sunday, May 9.
