On Wisconsin Outdoors saved 2000 papers from our 100,000 January/February press run specifically to give us an excuse to tour the Winnebago system and drop papers at registration stations, restaurants and taverns as spearers and onlookers celebrated day 2 of the season. If you have not participated in this great event one way or another, I highly recommend you jump in soon.  Besides, what more romantic way to celebrate Valentine’s Day ...

Lake Michigan Whitefish Virtual Meeting August 18

MADISON, Wis. – In order to fully engage with everyone who has an interest in lake whitefish, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will hold a virtual public meeting to discuss options on the best path forward for this species.

This virtual meeting will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 18, at 6 p.m. and concluding at 8 p.m. Members of the public can access the meeting beginning at 5:45 p.m. via Zoom or by calling 312-626-6799 and using meeting ID: 957 6595 4593.

The department will be developing new regulations for lake whitefish for the commercial industry and would like stakeholder participation from a wide variety sources. This will be the first of several public meetings over the course of the next year.

“We have been working with commercial anglers on a variety of projects over the last 5 years,” said Brad Eggold, DNR Great Lakes District Fisheries Supervisor. “This collaboration has provided valuable data and information on the population size and movement patterns of this prized Lake Michigan fish.”

It’s important to note that during this meeting, information will be shared using a PowerPoint presentation. While the call-in number will allow attendees to listen to the discussion, to better understand the information and see the presentation, the DNR recommends the public attend using a computer via the Zoom link.

“We look forward to discussing this information with stakeholders and gathering their comments and suggestions to help us sustain the lake whitefish fishery into the future,” said Todd Kalish, Deputy Fisheries Director.

More information on Lake Michigan commercial fishing can be found on the DNR’s fisheries webpage.
