Outdoors: Iowa DNR accepting comments on proposed walleye length limit changes on Lake Rathbun

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is accepting comments on proposed changes to walleye length limits on Lake Rathbun, through Sept. 29.

The DNR is proposing a 15-inch minimum length limit on all walleye captured from Rathbun Lake. These changes will start Jan. 1. All walleyes measuring less than 15 inches must be immediately released. Anglers can keep five walleyes per day. This regulation will not apply to the Chariton River below Rathbun Dam.
