lake trout

Expanded lake trout harvest opportunities will take effect Saturday, April 15 in the Wisconsin waters of Lake Michigan thanks to an emergency rule approved by the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board, increasing the daily bag limit from two to five lake trout. Other provisions include: counting the five fish daily lake trout limit as part of the overall five trout and salmon combined daily bag limit; maintaining closure of refuges, which are supporting some natural reproduction; and offering a continuous open season in 2017.
