Wisconsin DNR meetings explain Lake Superior fishing plan

Wisconsin DNR staff will hold two public meetings to discuss an updated Lake Superior fisheries management plan. The meetings will take place at 6 p.m. on Sept. 16 at the Peter Rich Community Center, 1201 N. 8th St. in Superior, and at 6 p.m. on Sept. 17 at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center, 29270 County Highway G in Ashland.

DNR staff will present the draft Lake Superior Fisheries Management Plan developed over the last two years with significant input from stakeholders and a 26-member advisory panel. Attendees at these meetings will also have an opportunity to provide comments on the plan. In conjunction with these meetings there will be a 30-day comment period on the plan.

“The previous Lake Superior fisheries management plan is 30 years old,” said Bradley Ray, DNR fisheries supervisor.
