Fishing regulations to be discussed
Special to the Times

PHOENIX - The 2013-14 fishing regulations will be considered at the Sept. 8 portion of the upcoming (Sept. 7-8) meeting of the Arizona Game and Fish Commission. The meeting begins at 8 a.m. at the Game and Fish Department headquarters at 5000 W. Carefree Highway in Phoenix.

The commission will consider amending Commission Order 40 (fish), which establishes open seasons, open areas, bag and possession limits, special regulations, and specific closures.

Five proposed amendments include:

• Remove the Special Regulation (slot limit) for bass at Alamo Lake.

• Extend the "catch-and-release only" Special Regulation for bass at Pena Blanca Lake through 2016.

• Create Special Regulations for bass, catfish and trout at Cataract Lake and Kaibab Lake that include: a 13-inch minimum size limit for bass and a reduced two bass limit; a reduced four catfish limit; and a reduced four trout limit. 

• Establish gizzard shad as a legal live baitfish from the following legal areas only: (1) The Colorado River south of Separation Canyon downstream to the southern international boundary with Mexico. 

• Create Special Regulations for channel catfish at Parker Canyon Lake that include a reduced four channel catfish limit.

The proposed changes and the rationale behind them can be found at www.azgfd.gov/fishregs.

The public is welcome to attend the commission meeting, or view it over the web at Game and Fish regional offices or from any computer at www.azgfd.gov/commissioncam.
