Daily bag limits have been lowered on 533 lakes in response to tribal spearing declarations announced Monday, revisions that affect 346 lakes in Vilas, Oneida and Forest counties.
In the three counties, there will be a three-walleye bag limit for sports anglers on just one lake, a two-fish bag limit on 209 lakes and a one-fish bag limit on 136 lakes.
Last year, 535 lakes statewide and 327 locally were part of the harvest declarations made by six bands of Chippewa in Wisconsin.
Statewide, 176 lakes will have a one-walleye bag limit,
