The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) has decided that effective January 1st, 2016, no Walleye fishing on Lake Scugog will be allowed until further notice.
“There has been a decline in Walleye across the Southern region basically, but of the six lakes monitored by the Kawartha Lakes fisheries assessment unit, none have seen a decline like Scugog,” Ministry management biologist Ilsa Langis said.
MNRF will be closing the walleye fishery for Lake Scugog in Fisheries Management Zone (FMZ) 17 year round until further notice. The closure will take effect on January 1, 2016. The regulation change takes into account advice from both the Fisheries Management Zone 17 council, input from the public and stakeholders and the best science available.
