Atchafalaya Basin Black Bass Creel Limit To Change

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Beginning Saturday, black bass regulations on the Atchafalaya River Basin will be consistent with statewide regulations — no length limit with a 10 fish daily creel.

         Impacted waterbodies include the Atchafalaya River Basin, Lake Verret, Lake Palourde Complex and Lake Fausse Point/Lake Dauterive Complex.

         In June 2013, the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission approved the removal of the 14-inch minimum length, and as a temporary transition measure, reduced the daily creel limit from 10 to seven bass for a two-year period. That restriction has now expired.
