DNR outlaws lead fishing tackle on 3 northern lakes

VILAS COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - Lead fishing tackle will not be allowed on three northern Wisconsin lakes starting next month.

The DNR says anglers on lakes Pallette, Escanaba, and Nebish in Vilas County cannot use tackle smaller than an inch which contains any lead.

The DNR is conducting research on the three Vilas County lakes, and they want to prevent loons and other birds from eating small pieces of lead.

Officials will ask anglers on all three lakes to fill out surveys about their usage of non-lead tackle.
