KDWP has released a summary of the new 2009 fishing regs. It can be viewed here http://www.kdwp.state.ks.us/news/Fishing/2009-FISHING-REGULATIONS-AVAILABLE-SOON. These are just summaries of the new regs. The detailed regs will be in the printed book that you always see on the counter of the bait shop, walmart sporting goods, and other places you buy licenses. There a some changes that are worth looking at this year so you may want to snag one of the books when they come out. There is one thing that affects me since I fish Milford a lot. They have changed the creel limit of blues from 10 a day to 5 a day. That is a signifigant change. How significant? At the last Gathering Tom, Nate, and myself caught 12 blues. Under this new rule we would have been 3 away from a limit vs 18 away from a limit with the old rule. We could have easily caught more than 3 more fish if I would learn how to hook a fish. I usually fish with Larry and we have never caught a limit of 20 blues between us under the old rule. We have caught more than 10 and I have caught more than 5 often fishing by myself. So it will reduce the number of blues taken out of the lake as long as they enforce it. It also mentions a detail of the length limit and creel limit will be covered in the book. Does that mean there will be a slot length, minimum length or maximum length on Blues out of these lakes? It will be interesting to get a book and find out.I believe it is for the good and support it. The other thing in there is the "jug" fishing. It is only allowed in 6 lakes, Tuttle is one but Milford is not, and it is only a 2 month season. Again it is not as bad as I thought it would be and don't have a problem with it, as long as they enforce it and it doesn't turn into a free for all at every lake all year long.. Curious what everyone else's thoughts are about the new rules.
