New regulations: Michel Lake and Reesor Lake – October 9, 2018

Recent stocking of the Michel and Reesor Lakes has led to the following new sportfishing regulations for those waterbodies:

Watershed Unit Water Current Regulation Effective Date
PP1 Michel Lake Not listed in Regulation Table Trout limit - 5 (combined total), Only 1 may be a Brown Trout over 35 cm, Rainbow Trout - no size limit September 19, 2018
PP1 Reesor Lake Not listed in Regulation Table Trout limit - 5 (combined total), Only 1 may be a Tiger Trout over 50 cm, Rainbow Trout - no size limit September 19, 2018

Safe and minimal catch-and-release handling should be followed at all times, to reduce fish stress and mortality. See:

Fishing Guide Corrections
