PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department has eliminated the 15-inch minimum length restriction for walleye on Bitter Lake in Day County and the Cattail/Kettle Lake Complex in Marshall County.

The update is one of a few fishing regulation changes for 2016.

GF&P has also lifted the length restrictions on largemouth or smallmouth bass on Lake Cochrane in Deuel County and Waubay Lake in Day County.

The 15-inch minimum length restriction for walleye from the area below Fort Randall Dam downstream to the South Dakota-Nebraska border is now in place year-round.

Officials say anglers can now use their smartphones to display copies of their fishing licenses in lieu of paper copies.
