MDC Fisheries Management Biologists Mike Bayless (l) and Greg Stoner (r) stand with a display of blue catfish showing the sizes and number of fish allowed to be caught daily at Truman Reservoir and Lake of the Ozarks under proposed regulation changes. Changes under consideration include: Increasing the daily limit from five to 10 blue catfish. This would allow anglers to take home more fish. Adding a protected slot-length limit for medium-size blue catfish of 24 to 32 inches (5 to 13 pounds), 25 to 33 inches (6 to 15 pounds) or 26 to 34 inches (7 to 16 pounds). This would allow medium-size blue catfish to reach larger sizes. Allowing the harvest of one or two blue catfish above the protected slot-length limit. This would enable anglers to harvest or catch and release larger fish. The changes would affect blue catfish at the two lakes and their tributaries, including the no-boating zone below Truman Dam.
