The regulation allows anglers to still keep a total of 15 catfish per day, but only one blue catfish greater than 30 inches.
After some anglers signed a petition against it, Sherrer, D-Pryor Creek, authored a resolution to repeal the rule.
The resolution passed the House but Senators never voted it, meaning the new catfishing regulation will become law Jan. 1.
