The Illinois Department of Natural Resources has been trying to clarify and modify applications for fishing tournaments.

Here is the latest update:

Everyone, The Illinois Department of Natural Resources anticipates new fishing tournament permit applicationrules will go into effect in April 2015. The application process is not yet online, so tournament anglershave continued to send in paper applications. To date the Department has received nearly 1,200tournament requests. As part of the permit procedures, an online account will be created for each club ortournament trail that has submitted paper applications. Notification of that account will be sent to each tournament director via e-mail. Each tournamentdirector will enter catch information after each tournament. This information will be used by thebiologists make management decisions. We thank the tournament angling community for their patienceas we’ve worked through this process and look forward to receiving their catch data. The new proposed rules can be found at under thesecond notice tab. More information and a Question and Answer section on the rules can be found here:
