Coleraine, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The Canisteo mine pit will be open to liberalized fishing starting Thursday.

Until sunset on December 1, there will be no limits as to how many fish anglers can take from the pit.

The liberalized fishing period is an effort to utilize the public land before it's closed. The land is closing to public use to allow iron ore concentrate producer Magnetation to expand its operations.
