Strong Women: DNR Commissioner Sarah Strommen on the Fishing Opener


DNR Commissioner Sarah Strommen joins Heidi and John on the Thursday Morning Show to talk about the importance of fishing to the state of Minnesota.  She tells us fishing is a time-honored tradition in Minnesota and also a big business, providing economic activity and building communities.

Commissioner Strommen talks with John and Heidi about the DNR initiative to be more inclusive and include all Minnesotans to be involved in fishing and other outdoor activities.  The DNR has created a platform for diverse outdoor enthusiasts to share their stories and photos by going to #MyMNOutdoorAdventure.

The Commissioner gives us some reminders for opening day.  Have your license with you, wear your PFD’s and remember to clean your boat when leaving a lake to help keep our waters clean and safe from aquatic invasive species.
