JONESBORO, Ar (KAIT) - Two new state wide fishing regulations took effect January 1st.
One allows the use of wood or cane poles to be anchored in the bottom of AGFC owned lakes to support yo-yo's and limb lines.
Fisherman may legally drive wooden stakes or push cane poles into the bottom of an AGFC lake to hold yo-yo's or limb lines. However, any metal rods (such as rebar) are not legal for this purpose. Metal post or rods in the water are hazards for boats. Wood an cane poles aren't as hazardous because boats bump over them or push them out of the way. All poles must be removed when the angler is done fishing.
