Emergency Regulation Suspending 3 Rod Limit Per Person In Tidal Waters Is Approved
The Administrative, Executive, and Legislative Review Committee has approved the emergency regulation. There is no longer a 3 fishing rod limit per person in tidal waters. The emergency regulation is effective beginning March 20, 2014 and will remain in effect for 180 days. The Department is currently discussing recreational gear regulations, including rod limits, with the Sport Fisheries Advisory Commission, fishing tackle shop businesses, sports fishermen and other interested parties. Based upon this information obtained from outreach with the recreational fishing community over the coming weeks, a permanent regulation will be submitted later this year.
