Proceeds from sales of the stamp, which is not required to fish for or keep walleye, are used to maintain and enhance Minnesota's famed walleye fishing.

When you add the $5 walleye validation to your fishing license, those dollars flow into a dedicated account for walleye stocking. For $0.75 more, the DNR will mail you the actual walleye stamp as a collector's item.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources stocks walleye in about 1,000 lakes that cover roughly 1 million acres. This effort costs more than $3 million per year. Your purchase of a walleye stamp supports the purchase of fish from certified private providers.

Minnesota is blessed with about 2 million acres of walleye water, of which about one-half have strong self-sustaining walleye populations. Stocking improves fishing in walleye waters where natural reproduction occurs at only low or moderate levels.
