Natural Resources Board enacts emergency measures to stop fish virus
The state Natural Resources Board has banned the moving of live fish from the Lake Winnebago system to try and keep the VHS virus from spreading.
It also means that anglers must clean their boats and fishing gear when they leave the water.
On a conference call Thursday, board members said no to expanding the restrictions statewide. But they agreed to do so if viral hemorrhagic septicemia is found in another inland lake.
