If weather cooperates walleyes should bite on opener
The long wait for the walleye opener is almost over, with the season opening tonight at 12:01 a.m. The season also opens at midnight for sauger, northern pike and stream trout living in lakes.
Surface water temperatures in most of the lakes in the Bemidji area are in the low to mid 50s, which is a little warmer than usual for the opener.
