Sunset Lodge Trophy Policy

At Sunset Lodge we respectfully ask guests to recognize that trophy fish produce the spawn responsible for restocking the lake system.  As such, guests are to practice Catch Photo and Release on any trophy size fish that will not be mounted.  All of the fish we have shown you were released.  CPR will help to ensure great sport fishing for years to come. With this in mind, our guests set the trend.  With more people opting for conservation fishing limits, we offer free 8 day conservation fishing tag for each paying guest who registers under a Package Plan, Housekeeping Plan or Hunting Package.
