DWR Recommending Changes to Bait Fishing

The Division of Wildlife Resources is inviting the public to get involved as changes are being considered to fishing rules for 2017 and 2018. Public meetings are scheduled and anglers are urged to attend as officials discuss whether or not to allow anglers to use corn for bait. Utah currently is the only state in the West that does not allow for the use of corn but DWR biologists are recommending a two-year pilot study on certain waters in Utah that would help them determine if corn should become a legal bait. The local meeting will be held at the Northeastern Region Office in Vernal on September 15th at 6:30pm.
