** The 15" walleye minimum size limit remains in effect for the entire
season. Anglers are reminded that the daily bag limit for trout and
salmon on Lake Erie and its tributaries is 2, beginning September 1
through May 15, 2005. The minimum size limit is 12 inches.**

Most of the ice that had formed on Lake Erie is breaking up and melting
with warmer temperatures and recent rains. There is not any safe ice
for ice fishing. Surface temperatures are dangerously low in open water
areas for boaters. Use extreme caution when fishing from a boat or off
of breakwalls when water temperatures are in the 30's. Very little
fishing has been reported in the last week.
