Default 2015-16 Fishing Regulations Set at TFWC Meeting

NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission established the 2015-16 sport fish regulations during its December meeting which concluded Friday afternoon at the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agencys Ray Bell Region II Building.
The regulations, which are normally set at the October meeting, were postponed until this meeting. This TFWCs October decision to delay the action allowed time for the public to comment on a recently proposed amendment to the proclamation concerning harvest regulations for smallmouth bass on Douglas Lake.
In addition to changes proposed at the October meeting, the new proclamation also changes smallmouth bass regulations on Douglas Lake. From June 15 through Oct. 15, there will be a 20-inch minimum length limit on smallmouth bass, and only one smallmouth bass may be kept in the daily creel limit of 5 bass (in combination with largemouth and spotted bass). From Oct.16 through June 14, there will be an 18-inch minimum length on smallmouth bass with a 5 fish creel limit (in combination with largemouth and spotted bass).

This is good, since SM are relatively easy to catch during the cooler months
