NRC Gives Final Approval to New Catfish Rules

The Indiana Natural Resources Commission on Tuesday gave final approval to rule changes that govern commercial fishing and sport fishing for catfish. The new rules raise the minimum size on catfish from 10 to 13 inches and limit the number of large catfish that can be taken — no more than one each per day of channel catfish at least 28 inches long, blue catfish at least 35 inches long, and flathead catfish at least 35 inches long. The changes apply to both commercial fishing and sport fishing on lakes, reservoirs, streams, and rivers, including the Ohio River.
