Changes to Yo-Yo and Trotline Regulations on Specified Lakes

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries would like to remind anglers that revised regulations are now in affect regarding the use of yo-yos and trotlines on Black Lake, Clear Lake, Prairie Lake, Caddo Lake, Chicot Lake, D’Arbonne Lake and Lake St. Joseph.

The change only applies to the waterbodies listed above and addresses an ongoing problem.  The previous rule only prohibited metal objects from being placed to anchor a yo-yo or trigger device.    This change prohibits the placement of any artificial object to anchor a yo-yo or trigger device.  Such objects could include metal, cane, PVC tubing, or any other type of material.
