[DNR] Fish limits on West Boggs Creek Reservoir will be relaxed

Event Description

Anglers at West Boggs Creek Reservoir in Daviess County will be allowed to harvest more fish starting Saturday, Feb. 8.

The reservoir will undergo a renovation during fall that will consist of draining the water and eradicating the fish population. As the reservoir refills, it will be stocked with the appropriate numbers of game fish. The goal is to restore a balanced, self-sustaining fish population.

A temporary change to size and bag limits will allow anglers to harvest more fish before the lake is drained. The rule change is in effect from Feb. 8 to Oct.10.

The bag limit for largemouth bass on West Boggs will increase to 10, and there will be no size limit. Bag limits for all other species will be double the normal daily bag limit. 

Two fish salvage operations will also take place in spring and fall for adult bass and catfish.

The lake is scheduled to reopen to the public in February 2015.
