Renovation at Dove Hollow Marsh results in fishing rule changes

Anglers at Dove Hollow Marsh in Glendale Fish & Wildlife Area can soon harvest more fish before the marsh is drained this spring for repairs.

Effective Dec. 15, the DNR has removed the largemouth bass size limit and doubled the daily bag limit for all species at the marsh, which is in Daviess County. The temporary rule change will be in effect until Dec. 15, 2018.

The DNR is replacing the drain-control structure and replacing the boat ramp at the marsh. This will require draining the water starting in spring 2018.

The DNR is relaxing fishing regulations at the marsh so fewer fish are wasted when it is drained.

The DNR will restock Dove Hollow Marsh with fish after repairs are finished.
