For all of the avid fisherman out there — this is for you!

According to, this regulation, beginning March 1, was put in place over concern “about the potential over-harvest of these fish”.

Please be aware of the following regulations as you fish at the Lake of the Ozarks this year. The new regulations are listed below:

  •  Ten blue catfish daily
  • A protected slot-length limit of 26-34 inches (7-16 pounds)
  • Fish within the slot must be returned to the water unharmed immediately.
  • Two blue catfish larger than 34 inches
  • These two fish would count toward the daily limit of 10.
