In the Wild with Greg Wagner


WALLEYE SPAWN REGULATION REMINDERS AND INFO by Greg Wagner

 As the walleye spawn begins along the faces of various reservoir dams here in Nebraska, some friendly regulation reminders are in order from our Game and Parks Law Enforcement Division. 

After purchasing your 2010 Nebraska fishing and park permits, and before you head to your favorite reservoir dam to cast your crankbaits or present your jig/minnow combos during lower light periods for “Marble Eyes,” learn the limits – length, bag and possession. I’d strongly encourage you to practice catch-and-release!

  

 Please know that two reservoir dams are closed to night fishing during the walleye spawn, and they are the Sherman Reservoir Dam near Loup City and the Lake Minatare Dam near Minatare. Here’s a link to the 2010 Nebraska Fishing Guide

where you can find out all of the detailed regulation and public waters information pertaining to walleye fishing: http://www.ngpc.state.ne.us/fishing/guides/fishguide/FishGuide.pdf 

Also, remind yourself and your fishing partners that any foul-hooked fish, any fish not hooked in the mouth, will have to be returned to the water immediately and that dip-netting fish is illegal.

Be safe on the rocks, be polite to other anglers and take a kid along on your walleye fishing trip. 

By the way, if you haven’t heard, Lake McConaughy’s walleye population is looking especially good this year!

See you out there, and don’t forget to offer a big wave to Game and Parks Fisheries Biologist Daryl Bauer along the shoreline!

His blog on fish and fishing in Nebraska is a must-see! The link is: http://barbsandbacklashes.wordpress.com/2010/03/
