Here is an interesting little tidbit. I have just moved to Utah and discovered that fresh water spearfishing is allowed in certain lakes from June through to October. The catch is limited by species, weight, and length and requires a fishing licence. There are far more severe limits on spearfishing than traditional methods. I am sure why this is but am pleased to see as there is no restriction on scuba gear. I was wondering if anyone is aware of other states, provinces, or regions that allow fresh water spear fishing? You can find out the Utah statutes by logging onto www.utahdiving.com and following the links from there.
