Catch and Release Regulations
Single barbless hooks onlyTackle tests determined that single barbless hooks significantly reduced the number of fish dying following release. Anglers will be permitted to use only single barbless hooks. This applies to all species and the waters of the specified lakes. Hooks can be easily converted to barbless by squeezing or filing the barb.
The tackle most commonly used in all of our lakes are Jigs, Mr. Twisters, Spinners and Spoons. These lures can be modified to single barbless hooks for the Catch and Release Lakes.
BaitThe possession and use of live bait-fish is prohibited in this area.
Trophy FishAll trophy fish should be released back to the water. A replica of your trophy is recommended. This will ensure quality sport fishing opportunities for the future.
Measure the length, girth and take a picture and return it back to the water as soon as possible. Let that trophy fish be a thrill for the next sportsman or even for yourself.
