The dates of the suspension of bass size restrictions for youth anglers are May 24-26 and Aug. 30-Sept. 1. This suspension will take place in the Atchafalaya Basin, Lake Verret-Palourde Area and Lake Fausse Point-Dauterive Area.
The normal 10 bass per day limit from these areas will still apply to all anglers during these weekends. Anglers 16-years-old and older will still be required to observe the 14-inch minimum size limit during these special youth fishing weekends.
For more information on these areas and questions about the youth fishing weekends, contact Mike Wood at 318-343-4045 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Inland Fisheries Division staff and the Freshwater Fisheries Recreational Task Force supported and suggested this youth angler bass suspension to the LWFC.
