2013 Walleye Limits Reduced on Lake Nipissing

For 2013, the Walleye catch limits for a Sports License will be limited to 2 and the catch limits for a Conservation License will be limited to 1 on Lake Nipissing.

"In 2012, the Ministry of Natural Resources completed a scientific review of long-term fisheries data from Lake Nipissing. The review suggested that there is a marked drop in the walleye numbers, particularly of spawning walleye. The data also showed that fishing is the primary factor in the decline of the walleye population in Lake Nipissing." source: MNR.gov
