New fishing rules to take effect for Stonewall Lake

SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- New fishing regulations are set to take effect next year at Stonewall Jackson Lake.

The Division of Natural Resources said the changes include a six fish per day creel limit. One of these may be 18 inches or longer for black bass.

There also will be a 52-inch minimum size limit with a one fish per day creel limit for muskellunge.

Previously there was a catch-and-release regulation in place for all black bass and a 30-inch minimum size limit with a two-fish per day creel limit for muskellunge.

Officials say the regulation change was proposed by biologists who began noticing a decline in physical condition of largemouth bass and increased numbers of spotted bass.
