The 2001-2002 Seasons and bag limits are available. Fishing rules are on pages 15 and 16 of the pdf file, http://www.dcnr.state.al.us/agfd/2001%202002%20seasons.pdf
The changes include a three pole limit on Weiss and Neely Henry and a slot limit for bass on Little Bear Creek Reservoir. The slot limit will go into effect October 1, 2001. A slot limit is used to encourage harvest of bass shorter than thirteen inches as these smaller bass are slow growing. Once a bass is thirteen inches, they feed more on fish. The thirteen to sixteen inch bass must be release unharmed. Bass longer than sixteen inches may be kept. This regulation, if anglers keep small bass, should result in higher quality fishing for everyone.
