The MNR just released their new regulations for Zone 17 (Durham, Peterborough, Kawartha Lakes and Northumberland) which will take effect January 1, 2010.
There will now be year round fishing for northern pike, yellow perch, crappie and sunfish so ice fishermen will finally have a turn at fishing their favorite Kawartha Lakes hot spots during the winter months. The MNR has also extended the fall fishing season to December 15 for bass and muskellunge. They have created stricter limits for walleye, to protect the declining populations in Zone 17 and added new sunfish limits, to maintain healthy populations
With more lakes for ice fishermen to fish I wonder if there will be a decline in anglers on the Bay of Quinte this winter.
