April 18, 2017. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has completed the final draft of its long-term fisheries management plan for Wisconsin’s Lake Michigan waters and invites citizens to provide final input. Lake Michigan has seen drastic ecological changes in recent years and the new plan will guide fisheries management through the next 10 years.
“We listened to what the public said during public input sessions and incorporated this feedback along with our own thoughts into the draft 10-year plan. Now, it’s time to see whether we are on track with the expectations and desires of the public.”
—Brad Eggold, DNR Great Lakes district fisheries supervisor
