There are two new Iowa fishing regulation changes for 2014. The first change makes it illegal to transport aquatic invasive species or any aquatic plants. Now, you must also drain all water from your boat, livewell, bilge, ballast tank, bait bucket, and other equipment holding water before leaving water access. DNR Conservationist, Ken Kenyon, says that if you want to keep live bait when leaving a water access, you must replace water in bait containers with tap or bottled water.
