FINDLAY, OH- Fisheries biologists have set the special Lake La Su An Wildlife Area fishing regulations for this year, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).
All lakes on the area will be open to fishing for 2016 except Lake Lavere. From May 6 through Aug. 1 the lakes will be open to fishing 4 days a week: Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The La Su An Wildlife Area will be closed to fishing at all other times. Fishing will be allowed at the lakes open to fishing from sunrise to sunset during the designated fishing days.
ODNR Division of Wildlife fisheries biologists have also set the bag limits for 2016. The sunfish bag limits will be 15 fish daily, with no more than 5 fish being 8 inches or larger. Largemouth bass will have an 18 inch minimum length limit, with a 5 fish daily bag limit. Channel catfish will have a 2 fish daily bag limit. All bag limits are in effect area wide. This means that only 1 bag limit will be allowed each day regardless of how many lakes an angler fishes.
All statewide fishing regulations apply to the area lakes except when superseded by the special regulations mentioned above. Anglers are also reminded that no fish may be used as bait on the area.
These regulations have been designed to continue the tradition of quality bluegill fishing on the Lake La Su An Wildlife Area lakes by continuing to regulate the amount of fishing pressure without the need for anglers to obtain a reservation. Parking will only be allowed in designated areas.
