Anglers Need to be Aware of Frog and Turtle Regulation Errors
COLUMBUS, OH - Anglers need to be aware of a typographical error in Publication 84, Ohio fishing regulations 2011-12 regarding the opening day of turtle season and the bag limit on frogs says the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Wildlife.
The correct opening date for turtle season is July 1, 2011, not the second Friday in June (June 10) as printed in the regulations. Also, the bag limit on frogs should be 15, not 10 as printed.
The most current information regarding all fishing bag limits and dates can be found on the Division's website wildohio.com or by calling 1-800-WILDLIFE.
The ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all. Visit the ODNR Web site at www.ohiodnr.com.
