Nebraska anglers, make your voice heard at our public meetings

Right now, the Nebraska Game and Parks fisheries division is planning a road map for the future — a comprehensive plan that will guide us as we manage Nebraska’s aquatic resources. We want your input as we do this.

You are invited to a series of public meetings across Nebraska in early October. These meetings will focus on how the fisheries division will look and operate in the future. Each meeting will begin with a brief overview of our division, followed by an open listening session in which anyone can speak. We want to hear your opinion on what we are doing well and should continue to do, as well as things we can work on in the future.

Each meeting starts at 7 p.m. and lasts for two hours. The schedule is:
