Atchafalaya Basin black bass creel limit to change
BATON ROUGE- Beginning Saturday, black bass regulations on the Atchafalaya River Basin will be consistent with statewide regulations - no length limit with a 10 fish daily creel.
Impacted waterbodies include the Atchafalaya River Basin, Lake Verret, Lake Palourde Complex and Lake Fausse Point/Lake Dauterive Complex.
In June 2013, the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission approved the removal of the 14-inch minimum length, and as a temporary transition measure, reduced the daily creel limit from 10 to seven bass for a two-year period. That restriction has now expired.
