Meeting set on proposed W.Va. fishing regulations

CHARLESTON (AP) -

A public meeting on proposed changes to West Virginia's fishing regulations will be held next week at Stonewall Jackson Lake.

The changes include a six-fish-per-day creel limit. 1 of these may be 18 inches or longer for black bass. There also would be a 52-inch minimum size limit with a one fish per day creel limit for muskellunge.

Currently, there is a catch & release regulation in place for all black bass and a 30-inch minimum size limit with a two-fish per day creel limit for muskellunge.

DNR Wildlife Resources Section assistant chief Bret Preston says the open-house style meeting will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. July 11 at the park's administration building.
