Lac du Flambeau Band sets limits for off-reservation fishing

The Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians has declared its limits for off-reservation fishing in Wisconsin.

By treaty, tribe retains off-reservation fishing rights in the Wisconsin Ceded Territory. This season, tribal members can spear 21,893 walleye on 255 lakes.

The tribe agreed to a two-bag limit in certain lakes. A three-bag limit remains in place for other lakes.

"We will still have a three-bag limit, but with compromises," President Tom Maulson told The Lakeland Times.
