Businesses along the lakeshore in Door and Kewaunee Counties want to see more anglers with more fish next year. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources hosted a pair of informational meetings this week in Green Bay and Milwaukee to discuss increasing the stocking numbers for Lake Michigan salmon and trout. Wisconsin Lakeshore Business Association President and Accurate Marine owner Tom Kleiman says now is the time to capitalize on a lake on the rebound.
Kleiman says the WLBA is in favor of stocking increases specifically for king salmon, steelhead, and brown trout. Final stocking increase numbers for 2020 will not be announced until later this fall.
