Got this in my email today:
My name is Brac Salyers, and I am the Inland Fisheries District Manager for the Atchafalaya Basin. Please accept my appreciation for the concern and comments you’ve already shared with us related to the fisheries resources of the Atchafalaya Basin.
This email is provided as an update on recently proposed changes for bass regulations. On Thursday, Feb. 7th, the Wildlife & Fisheries Commission passed a Notice of Intent to remove the 14” minimum length limit for the Atchafalaya Basin and adjacent waters. A temporary reduction in creel limit (from 10 daily to 7) is also included in the action. The creel reduction is to last for two years. After that time, statewide regulations (10 fish daily – no length limit) would apply. Public comment for the Notice of Intent is currently being accepted. You can send your opinion on the Notice of Intent to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Deadline for public comment is April 19th. If the NOI is successful, it would be implemented on June 20th.
Materials related to the proposed change are available at the following link:
Thank you again for your participation.
