SALT LAKE CITY — Trout limits have been increased in lakes in San Juan County and Daggett County, according to the state's Department of Wildlife Resources.

Drought conditions will require Kens Lake in San Juan County to be drained to a very low level.    

Rainbow trout that have been stocked in the lake will probably be lost when the water level decreases, according to a DWR press release. The trout limit has been raised from four trout to eight trout to allow anglers to take fish before they're lost.    

For more information, call the DWR's Southeastern Region office at 435-613-3700.  

The Middle Fork Sheep Creek drainage in the Uinta Mountains, including Spirit Lake in Daggett County, will be treated with rotenone in September. The trout limit has been raised from four trout to eight trout to allow anglers to take fish that will be lost when the lake is treated.   

For more information, call the DWR's Northeastern Region office at 435-781-9453.
