Rule changes for use of watercraft on Richart Lake
A recent rule change will allow nonmotorized canoes and kayaks to be used on Richart Lake at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge.
The lake is open to fishing year-round, and the use of these types of watercraft will allow greater access for anglers and wildlife observers.
