MADISON - Fishing forecasts from around the state are now available online in the 2011 Wisconsin Fishing Report.
The report will be available soon at DNR service centers and regional offices, and will be inserted in the April edition of the Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine.
"We've got fishing forecasts for more areas than ever, which is what readers told us last year they wanted," says Karl Scheidegger, a Department of Natural Resources fish biologist who leads DNR's fisheries' outreach efforts and was the report's primary editor and graphic designer. "We hope this information can lead you to the kind of fishing experience you're after, whether it's a shore lunch, a lunker, or great panfish action for the kids."
The report features 14 pages of forecasts submitted by local fish biologists and technicians, most of whom report the results of recent fish population surveys, habitat improvement projects, and what both will mean for fishing prospects in the coming season.
