Talk about liberal walleye limits...

"
Attention anglers! Due to walleye numbers exceeding management objectives in Canyon Ferry Reservoir, FWP has proposed SUBSTANTIALLY increasing bag limits and dropping the minimum size for keeping a larger fish! Here’s what Tom Kuglin with the Missoulian reported on this:
With walleye numbers exceeding management objectives in Canyon Ferry Reservoir, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks proposes substantially increasing bag limits and dropping the minimum size for keeping a larger fish.
Canyon Ferry’s management plan includes triggers aimed at addressing the ebb and flow of populations, said area fisheries biologist Eric Roberts, and one of those triggers has been met.

Last fall officials sampled the reservoir in its fall gill netting survey. They caught 11.6 per net, which pushed the 3-year average to 8.6 walleye per net.


The management trigger calls for adjusting limits if numbers exceed seven fish per net in the average.

“Basically is means there’s more walleye than we’d like to see to balance out the fishery,” he said, noting the dynamic between walleye, rainbow trout and perch as a forage fish.

The current bag limit is 12 fish daily and only one over 25 inches.

At next week’s meeting of the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission, FWP will seek permission to bump the daily limit to 20 walleye daily with one over 20 inches.

Wow, a guy could open a fish fry joint with that limit. No way I would keep that many in a day. But if that is the deal then they must know what they are doing. good luck.
