Lake trout bag limits reduced starting January 21st

Anglers on Lake Michigan will be limited to two lake trout daily after New Year's Day.  Wisconsin's Department of Natural Resources is adopting the two-fish limit based on the COVID-19 pandemic, partial fishing seasons and while research to update lake trout reproduction and harvest models is being completed.  That data would help develop new bag limits and restore a year-round open season.  Kevin Naze, an organizer of the K & D Salmon Tournament, believes the new bag limits will likely have little impact along Door and Kewaunee counties.  He says charter fishing customers are more interested in landing salmon and the lake trout population in northern Lake Michigan is going strong.

In addition to the daily bag limit of two lake trout, the open trout season will run from March 1st through October 31st or until permanent regulations are adopted.
