Anglers Reminded of Fishing Reg Changes

by SDGFP


South Dakota anglers should be aware of a few fishing regulation changes for 2016.

No longer a 15-inch minimum length restriction for walleyes on Bitter Lake (Day County) or Cattail/Kettle Lake Complex (Marshall County).

No longer length restrictions on largemouth or smallmouth bass on Lake Cochrane (Duel County) or Waubay Lake (Day County).

The minimum length restriction for walleye below Fort Randall Dam downstream to the SD/NE border is now 15 inches year-round.

Anglers can now use their smartphone to display a copy of their fishing license in lieu of a paper copy.

These and additional regulation changes can be found in the "What’s New for 2016" section of the 2016 South Dakota Fishing Handbook.
