Madison, Wis. The Wisconsin DNR is raising daily walleye limits on 127 lakes in the ceded territory in northern Wisconsin.
In April, the lakes were set at one, two, or three walleyes per day for sport anglers in order to accommodate Chippewa spearing harvest quotas. The bag limits on these lakes will be adjusted to reflect actual Chippewa spring spearing harvest totals. The new bag limits went into effect June 1. The general regulations have the walleye daily bag set at five fish on most lakes, with a minimum size of 15 inches.
For more information on the lakes where bag limits increased, see the Wisconsin DNR website at www.dnr.state.wi.us, or call (608) 267-9427.
