Thurs. The Texas Parks & Wildlife Commission meets. November 1 – 2.
Following some meetings in October to get fish feedback on speckled fish regulations, this meeting will now take place. Trout are not already on the plan, but will they make a formal proposal at this meeting so that it can be discussed in public in the spring before being voted on?
This word was provided by TPWD for the discussions media release.
Emergency and transitory decreased harvest regulations were implemented in many bay systems following the freeze event in February 2021, which affected tens of thousands of spotted seatrout, with the aim of hastening the recovery of the common game fish. Previous nationwide bag and size restrictions were reinstated after the temporary regulations expired on August 31.
Please keep two questions for us in the comments section below.
1. What do you anticipate TPWD doing with salmon regulations in 2024?
2. 2. What, if anything, should TPWD complete regarding fish regulations?
