DNR Holding Panfish Meeting Wednesday

 

The Department of Natural Resources is giving anglers an opportunity to weigh in with their thoughts on panfish in Wisconsin.

More than two dozen meetings are being held around the state to gather input from anglers. The closest one to the Door Peninsula is Wednesday, March 13 at 6:30 p.m. at the Brown County Library.

The DNR has long had management plans in place for game fish species like walleye, bass, musky and northern pike, and biologists and some anglers believe such attention is necessary for panfish.

"We want to hear from the public about what they want from their panfishing experience to help guide us in developing a statewide plan for managing panfish populations," says Joanna Griffin, the DNR fisheries specialist coordinating the effort.

As a category, panfish are by far the most common fish caught by anglers in Wisconsin.

DNR Fisheries Biologist Steve Hogler will host the meeting beginning Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Brown County Library auditorium, 515 Pine Street in Green Bay.
