2019 Public hearing for Clark Lake proposed panfish bag limit change

 The DNR will be accepting comments concerning the proposed reduction of the daily panfish bag limit from 25 down to 10 on Clark Lake at the spring fish and wildlife public hearings. This proposal was included on the CLAA survey and received support among the 188 respondents with 79% indicating strong support and another 16% indicating moderate support.

 A walleye bag limit reduction was initially suggested too, but this wasn’t viewed favorably by DNR’s internal review, and isn’t going forward to the spring hearing.  

 These hearings are set for Monday April 8, with one in-person public hearing in each county across the state starting at 7:00 PM.

 In addition to the in person public hearings, and for the first time ever, there will be opportunity for people to respond online too.  This online option will be provided through a link that will be posted on this website (https://dnr.wi.gov/About/WCC/springhearing.html) and will go live at 7:00 PM on April 8. The online response option will remain open for three days (72 hours).  Please visit the DNR website for many additional details on the entire spring hearing process.
