People interested in applying for the commercial fishing license that allows the removal of rough fish from lakes and streams in northwestern Otter Tail County should contact the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources by Friday, Jan. 31.

An application to transfer the license was filed, triggering the legal requirement that the DNR notify the public of a change in status and accept applications from other qualified individuals who want to apply for the license.

More information is available by contacting Neil Vanderbosch, DNR commercial fisheries program consultant. Inquires may be made via postal mail to Vanderbosch at 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, Minn., 55155 4020; 651-259 5178; or email
