Post Now In Effect - Lake Superior Lake Trout Emergency Rule

Lake Superior lake trout emergency rule takes effect
By the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Central Office January 12, 2015

ASHLAND, Wis. - An emergency rule reducing daily bag limits to protect the lake trout population in the Apostle Islands region of Lake Superior is now in effect, according to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

The 2014-15 emergency rule, approved by the Natural Resources Board at its December meeting, reduces the daily bag limit from three lake trout to two lake trout, one 20 to 25 inches in length and one longer than 35 inches. For waters west of Bark Point, regulations for lake trout remain unchanged; three lake trout with a 15 inch minimum length and only one lake trout longer than 25 inches.

The goal of the new regulations is to reduce the overall harvest to 50,000 fish. The recreational and commercial lake trout fishing seasons run through Sept. 30, 2015.
