Responsible Angling

Don’t forget to be a responsible angler:

  • Know the regulations for the limit and species for each season.
  • Know how to identify fish to better follow the regulations.
  • Handle fish with care to help them survive after they have been released back into the water.
  • Use barbless hooks to cause less damage to fish when catch-and-release fishing.
