Spring 2020 Trout Season Cancelled
Due to concerns associated with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the spring trout season opening dayâ€”originally scheduled for April 4â€”is postponed indefinitely. The parking lots and fishing lakes at Axehead Lake, Belleau Lake, Green Lake Woods, Horsetail Lake, and Sag Quarries are closed indefinitely, starting March 30.
That's direct from the CCFP website. IDNR claims those locations will be open but they won't be! Apparently they are still stocking all locations, but that then means they can't be fished until the closedowns are lifted... so this means Belleau and Axe will be closed after this weekend for an indefinite amount of time.
To me that's a tough precedent that may be used to close down other sites as well. Hopefully not, but I could see it happening as a blanket FP policy.
