Offer input on largemouth bass regulations at lakes Dunn and Austell

On Tuesday, March 20, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will host a public input meeting regarding fisheries management for largemouth bass on Lake Dunn and Lake Austell. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the visitor center of Village Creek State Park at 201 County Road 754 in Wynne.

These lakes have a history of producing the occasional trophy fish. Lake Dunn made headlines in 2012, when a Forrest City angler caught a 16 pound, 5 ounce largemouth that would have broken the long-standing state record. Unfortunately, the angler did not have a valid fishing license at the time of the catch, making it an illegal catch and not eligible to set the record. Lake Austell has been the recipient of many Florida-strain largemouth stockings over the years, and has been under a restriction where anglers were required to immediately release any bass caught between 13 and 16 inches.
