    Why does calender parking get enforced when there is NO SNOW? The ordinance is enacted to assist in snow removal and even when there is NO SNOW, police think it is enforceable. I refuse.

      The DNR needs to update the Online Regulations book.It cutrrnely reads two opening and closing dates for inland trout with no other details. It took a lot of searching to find a clear answer (thank you Tom)Why make a change so unclear and late in the year. Many communities will suffer from cancellations due to the change in such a late fashion of the BWCA trout season. As a job holding fisherman I have to scramble to try and get time off MIDWEEK; and at the end of the calendar year (when you put in for vacation for the next year) This change could have been thought out a bit, is completely unscientifically based (unless I’m missing out on a DNR press release, I’m searching) and a poor way to handle changes to the regulations.I sent a version of this rant to the DNR.
