Michigan Inland Trout Angler Survey – MI DNR

Michigan DNR Press Release

Angler input sought to develop statewide inland trout management plan

The Department of Natural Resources today announced it is seeking input from anglers who fish for inland trout in Michigan. The DNR plans to use the information to assist in the development of a statewide plan for inland trout fisheries. Angler fly fishing on an inland water body

The Michigan Inland Trout Angler survey will gather information about these anglers, how they fish, what their thoughts and opinions are on inland trout management, and other items. Inland trout populations are defined as populations that spend their entire lives in inland lakes and streams, and generally do not migrate into the Great Lakes.

“The information we obtain from this survey will be critical in our effort to make sound management decisions,” said Troy Zorn, research biologist with the DNR’s Fisheries Division. “We hope anglers will take the time to complete it so our future management plan is reflective of their input.”

Available online, the Michigan Inland Trout Angler survey is available now until Tuesday, March 31. It should take anglers approximately 10 to 20 minutes to complete.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is committed to the conservation, protection, management, use and enjoyment of the state’s natural and cultural resources for current and future generations. For more information, go to www.michigan.gov/dnr.
