Managing Superior lake trout
Lake trout numbers have declined in the Apostle Islands area of Lake Superior during the past eight to ten years. As a result, harvest quotas have been reduced for sport and commercial fishers.
Fisheries Management would like your opinion on lake trout regulation options for sport anglers for the 2016 season. Your opinion will help biologists make recommendations for a regulation that will stay within the quota and allow angling opportunities throughout the season.
What do you think? Take the survey.
