[DNR] Fishing Guide wrong on fishing below Ohio River dams
Start Date: 3/28/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 3/28/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
The print version of the 2013-14 Indiana Fishing Regulation Guide contains incorrect information on how fish can be taken below dams on the Ohio River.

The rule on Page 21 of the guide should state: “A person shall not take fish within 200 yards below any dam on the Ohio River except by fishing pole or hand line.”

The word “except” was dropped inadvertently from a past year’s online version of Indiana fishing regulations, and that incorrect text was carried over to this year’s print version.

Although the print version is incorrect, the language has been updated in the current online version of the guide at dnr.IN.gov/fishwild/2347.htm and eregulations.com/indiana/fishing/.

The updated online version also contains a clarification on the bag limit for sauger. A chart on Page 14 now notes the daily limit for sauger, walleye and walleye-sauger hybrid is six fish in any combination of the three species. Size limits are unchanged – minimum 14 inches for walleye and walleye-sauger hybrid (except on the Ohio River and the St. Joseph River in Elkhart and St. Joseph counties) and no minimum size on sauger.
