High lake levels challenging for local commercial fishing

Higher water levels on Lake Michigan and Green Bay are having little impact on commercial fishing on parts of Green Bay while also resulting in smaller catches closer to Lake Michigan.  The biggest challenge that higher lake levels pose for commercial operators has been the loss of docking and launching areas.  Charlie Henriksen, the owner of Henriksen Fisheries of Sister Bay, says another drawback has been fall storms.

 

 

Henriksen says one benefit of the higher waters is providing more spawning areas for some fish species.
