On Tuesday, April 11, 2017, Massachusetts Environmental Police Officers were alerted by the Middlesex Sheriff of suspected fresh water fishing violations.

Officers responded and found that a resident had been taking fish by funneling them into a net and a cage. Officers found the resident in possession of undersized largemouth bass, white sucker, American eel, and black crappie. The individual was issued several citations, and all fish were returned to the waters unharmed.
