From the Iowa DNR: Crappie, Bluegill Limit Proposed Anglers would be limited in the number of crappies and bluegills they could take home, under a regulation change being considered by the Department of Natural Resources. The agency's Natural Resource Commission has approved a notice of intended action to establish a daily limit of 25 crappies and 25 bluegills on public waters of Iowa. A similar limit is in effect on the Mississippi River. The commission dropped a proposed overall possession limit for the two panfish. The panel split 5-2 on the daily limit question. There will be hearings on the proposed limit; slated for Atlantic, Cedar Falls, Spirit Lake and Des Moines before a vote on the limit this fall.
