New Proposed Walleye Regulation for the TFF will be addressed at DNR Spring Hearings on April 8

The DNR Spring hearings will be held in all 72 counties at 7:00 PM on Monday, April 8. Detailed information is available here – 2019 DNR Spring Hearings. The Iron County meeting will be held at the Iron County Memorial Building, 201 Iron St., Hurley, WI 54534.

A fisheries management question extremely important to the TFF is on the agenda. Question 17 asks: Do you favor applying a 12-inch minimum length limit, but only one fish greater than 15 inches, and a daily bag limit of 3 walleyes on the Turtle- Flambeau Flowage, Trude Lake, Flambeau River upstream of Turtle- Flambeau Flowage (at Murray’s Landing), Little Turtle River, and the Manitowish River upstream of Flambeau River to the Rest Lake Dam (including Benson Lake, Sturgeon Lake, and Vance Lake)? This is the new proposed regulation developed by our fish manager Zach Lawson, and has received unanimous support by our fish management committee. We urge everyone to support this new regulation.

Please try to attend the meeting, but if you cannot, for the first time you can provide your input to the spring hearings online. The online input option will be provided through a link that will be posted here – 2019 DNR Spring Hearings, and will go live at 7:00 p.m. on April 8. The online version will remain open for three days (72 hours).
