GLSI Annual Meeting Agenda

Recommended Posts

The Great Lakes Salmon Initiative annual meeting is tomorrow at Jay's Sporting Goods in Clare MI.  Good day for a road trip to get some new gear and make your voice heard. The DNR will be there to answer questions and listen to anglers. The situation with Lk Trout is troubling. Their population is exploding and anglers are facing creel and or season reductions in Northern Lk Huron and Traverse Bays.  More info:

What can we as anglers expect fishing this year on Lakes Huron and Michigan? What can we expect in future years? So much depends on weather, water levels, productivity, bait fish, and states/federal stocking agenda. For example we are facing Lake Trout creel limit reductions and or season closures in northern Lakes Huron and Michigan 

The GLSI has been advocating to maintain Chinook plants, coho movement, zonal management, Brown Trout movement, angler access, economic impact and resisting the native only Lake Trout agenda. To get answers to these questions and many more join the GLSI this weekend at:

This Saturday March 2nd 2-5pm
Jays Sporting Goods Clare, Mi

Randy Claramunt the Lake Huron Basin Coordinator and Dave Carrofino from the MDNR Tribal Coordination Unit are scheduled to attend. They are here to answer questions and more importantly to listen to anglers. 

AS anglers we can expect the MDNR to manage our fisheries properly but we also have the responsibility to tell our managers what we want. Even more importantly they need to hear what we want as this gives them the power to negotiate with federal agencies for our interests.
