None of these are official yet but this is what you an expect to see for this year.
Same regulations as last year, with an extension of the season in 2004 opening April 15. There is a chance that this years season may open early but due to the legislative process it may extend beyond that date.
Same size and bag as last year with a year round open season. There is a chance that this years season may open early but due to the legislative process it may not.
The same size and bag but the 1-fish bag from June through Sept will be eliminated. Meaning you will not be able to keep the one fish during that time period.
