The MN DNR - Detroit Lakes Area Fisheries Staff operate a walleye spawn-take site and hatchery near Lake Sallie. This site is in operation from mid-April to early-May. Visitors to the site can see the spawn-take operation, and also view the hatchery. This is a guided tour if arrangements are made several days in advance, but is also open the public. For teachers and classes, a packet of information must be reviewed with the class prior to the tour. The packet includes background information and slides. A speaker may be able to come into the classroom prior to the tour to review the packet with the students, depending on time availability.
