SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. - The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources is hosting a public meeting to receive comments on proposed fishing regulation changes at Stonewall Jackson Lake on July 11, 2013, according to Bret Preston, Assistant Chief of the Wildlife Resources Section. A catch-and-release regulation is currently in place for all black bass and a 30-inch minimum size limit with a two fish per day creel limit is in place for muskellunge.
The proposed regulation changes include a six-fish-per-day creel limit, one of which may be 18 inches or greater in total length for black bass, and a 52-inch minimum size limit with a one fish per day creel limit for muskellunge.
The public meeting will be an open-house style meeting similar to the annual statewide public meetings held in March.
