Any talk of new changes to fishing regulations for Lake Nippissing in 2019? I was hoping for a slot size change and or possession limit change.

I haven't heard anything myself. I must admit I like the direction the lake is going.

It has improved so much over the past several years. I hope they leave the regs as is, the fishery is certainly improving.

Haven't heard any rumours of regulation changes pertaining to Nipissing, which leads me to believe they will remain the same for 2019.
I believe the 2019 regs will be made public early to mid December for the new year.

As mentioned above, I hope no changes are made at this point in time as the recovery process and size regulations seem to be working very well right now. Every year the numbers and size have been increasing and that speaks volumes to the efforts being made by all parties involved to ensure a healthy and sustainable walleye fishery in Nipissing for years to come.

When the MNRF introduced the plan in May 2014 the said it was a 5 year plan.

You can be almost certain there will be a change due to the fact of all the close to slot size fish that were caught last winter and released that those from that years hatch will all be keepers now.

I heard only one rumour late last season, a local bait shop told my buddy and I that the MNR were kicking around the idea that there would be no live bait allowed on Nip this season. I guess that would have been about the same time that Billy Bobs bait shop was up for sale. Anyways, this was coming from a bait shop owner when we asked about the other bait shop, may very well have been a comment to curb ideas of others buying Billy Bobs. Hope the regs dont change.

Maybe no live bait allowed, well them maybe no nets allowed would be reasonable too.

wow, that rumour went to hell very quickly. I find it hard to believe that a rumour, which has yet to be substantiated yet, can turn quickly into impeding on traditional rights.

That's why I said maybe. Don't get too excited, you'll crack the ice.

Rumours rumours rumours. That's all they are.

2019 regs will be out soon, I'm almost certain they will remain unchanged. Maybe see something revised for 2020.

And no live bait on Nipissing? That's a good one

I think they will go back to the old slot size.

if they go back to the old slot size, put the limit back up to 4 so we can have a decent meal.

I'd be very happy with the old slot and a two fish limit, two fish should supply one guy a decent meal, and much better then no meal.
