Wisconsin DNR Hosting Lake Michigan Fisheries Management Meeting

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is hosting a public meeting to present information and gather feedback on the future management of salmon and trout on Lake Michigan.

The meeting will start at 6 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 23, 2023, at Lakeshore Technical College’s Centennial Hall West in Cleveland, Wisconsin. The meeting will be in person, but a Zoom option will also be available.

DNR staff will present the latest Lake Michigan survey and stocking information, and stakeholders can share ideas and input on future fisheries management initiatives.

“We have been working very closely with critical stakeholders over the last 11 years to respond to the science and social preferences that drive this excellent fishery,” said Bradley Eggold, DNR Great Lakes District Fisheries Supervisor. “At this meeting, we will gather input and comments that will ultimately culminate in a plan for 2023 and beyond.”

More information on this meeting, including handouts and presentations, can be found on the DNR’s Lake Michigan Fisheries webpage.
