LINCOLN, Neb. – Frogging is a late summer and early fall tradition enjoyed by anglers wherever bullfrogs inhabit ponds, marshes, streams and lakes. Nebraska’s bullfrog season opens Aug. 15 and runs through Oct. 31.
Bullfrogs may be taken by hand, hand net or hook and line. The bag limit is eight frogs per person. The frogs must measure 4½ inches from snout to vent or be released. Artificial lights may be used to capture them. Nebraska law allows froggers to transport their catch alive or gutted, but the bullfrog’s body must be left intact during transport.
A valid Nebraska fishing permit is required to take bullfrogs.
