fish houses

8 posts in this topic

I know the deadline for fish houses was the 15th of March, but there were several sleeper houses that were still on the lake this past weekend. Just curious for future trips on what the rule is. Is there a difference between rentals and personal houses?

That was sure one of the best sunsets I have seen on Saturday evening. What a great day...

From what I understand, they can be left overnight if they are attended to daily.

No difference. If you are north of the highway 2 boundary your fish house may stay on the lake over night if it is in use. From what I understand the CO for upper red lake considers in use with holes drilled and the heat on. You don't actually have to be in the house.

The new law reads, "attended daily". With the old law you even had to fold up portables at midnight. confused.gif
