MADISON - The public can get a close up look at how Wisconsin fisheries crews give nature a helping hand to keep fishing great on Lake Michigan when state egg collecting facilities in Kewaunee and Racine hold open houses in October.

The events give fish enthusiasts of all ages a chance to see Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources crews collecting eggs from fish to produce the next generation of fish to be raised at state hatcheries and stocked back into the "big pond." The open houses also offer fun, hands-on learning for fishing skills like fly tying, knot tying and casting, all in beautiful settings along two major tributaries to Lake Michigan.
