Fishers reminded of refuge

In an effort to manage habitat and population of species in the Mink River, Northern Door fishermen are reminded of a refuge downstream. Door County DNR Conservation Warden Chris Kratcha says the change will last until Mid-June.


The closure went into effect in March. The change is not new, as it was instituted last year, but Kratcha finds it important to remind those who’ve forgotten. He says the DNR will persist in making people aware of the change. Kratcha also says this change will be in place every year going forward. It has been debated in the past whether or not to make the river a fish refuge. The Mink River is located near Newport State Park.
