GORDON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker traveled to northwestern Wisconsin for the 51st annual Governor’s Fishing Opener.

Walker was in Gordon on Saturday for the Governor’s Fishing Opener, held at the Minong Flowage.

Walker calls fishing a major recreational sport and tourism attraction in Wisconsin that draws 330,000 anglers from outside the state every year.

The Department of Natural Resources says more than 1.3 million fishing licenses are sold annually in Wisconsin.

The Minong Flowage is a 1,587-acre lake located in Douglas and Washburn counties.
