Trout limit switched again

Your bag limit for trout has now increased after an emergency rule was restored by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The lake trout harvest season for Lake Michigan, Green Bay and their respective tributaries will go year round, with a bag limit of five trout and/or salmon. 

 

This rule was already in place from 2017 through 2020 as an emergency rule designed to increase interest and opportunities to harvest lake trout. The rule came with a sunset clause that went into effect on January 1st, 2021. This brought the limits and season dates back to the way they were before 2017, when the trout bag limit was two and the season ran from March to October. DNR Great Lakes District Fisheries Supervisor Brad Eggold explained the positives of getting the emergency rule reinstated. 

 

 

The change back to the emergency ruling was made on July 23rd. The DNR is attempting to make the emergency ruling a permanent one.
