IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Current Illinois fishing regulations require that pure muskies harvested or kept be no less than 48”, 42” or 36” in total length from selected waters. Tiger muskies kept from selected waters where they occur must be 36” in total length or longer. Anglers should refer to the current year’s “Illinois Fishing Information” booklet to determine site specific length limits or contact the local DNR office for additional information. Thank you for taking the time to complete the information requested.
