Anglers are being advised that the area of St. Joseph River north of Fort Wayne commonly known as Cedarville Reservoir is subject to size and bag limit regulations on black bass for rivers and streams, not the general lake regulations.
Anglers may take up to five black bass in this area, but none can be between 12 to 15 inches in length and no more than two can be over 15 inches. This is commonly referred to as a slot limit.
Black bass is a term for largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass.
State regulations for black bass caught in lakes allow five fish with a minimum size of 14 inches.
Special regulations apply on Lake Michigan and several other lakes, streams and rivers across Indiana. Consult the Indiana Fishing Guide for details (fishing.IN.gov)
