Interested anglers now can learn more about the current status of Lake Michigan’s fishery, thanks to a detailed document produced by the Department of Natural Resources.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has posted a two-page document to its website to provide updated information about the current status of the Lake Michigan fishery.

This document, in an effort to better inform anglers and the public, answers many of the questions the DNR frequently receives regarding Lake Michigan’s salmon populations and how fisheries managers are addressing their declines.

The document “Lake Michigan Fishery Update” can be found at michigan.gov/fishing. Questions within the document include:

Why is the DNR managing for less salmon in Lake Michigan?

Will Lake Michigan follow Lake Huron?

Will the stocking cuts and possession limits be enough?

Why won’t Chinook salmon eat gobies?

“We believe the questions answered in this document will paint a clearer picture about what sportfish populations in Lake Michigan really look like and what that means for anglers who pursue them,” said DNR Fisheries Division Chief Jim Dexter. “Additional work that we’re doing—including both angler and fish assessments and fish modeling—will continue to add to this picture and give us better ideas about future steps to ensure Lake Michigan continues to maintain its world-class fishing reputation.”
