DNR board approves daily 3 walleye limit next spring

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Department of Natural Resources' board has adopted a three-walleye limit for lakes and rivers within Wisconsin's ceded territory for next spring.


   The board approved the regulations during a meeting in Bowler on Wednesday. The rules include provisions establishing that walleye taken from most waters in the territory must be at least 15 inches. Anglers can't keep walleye between 20 and 24 inches, however, and can keep only one walleye larger than 24 inches.


   The regulations are designed to protect the walleye population after the state's six Chippewa tribes take their share.
