The meeting will be held at the following location:

The Trout Management Plan provides direction for inland trout management in Wisconsin. It covers Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout and Lake Trout in inland lakes, ponds and streams of Wisconsin. This includes tributaries of the Great Lakes upstream from the first impassable barrier such as a dam and naturally occurring falls.

The plan communicates the direction and focus of the DNR Fisheries Program on inland trout management for the next 10 years. Specifically, it guides the allocation of resources, identifies constraints, and prioritizes management activities. This plan addresses many important fisheries management activities such as monitoring and research, habitat improvement, stocking, fishing regulations, land management, and land/easement acquisition.

The Trout Management Plan is available for review online at, or learn more by searching the DNR website,, for keywords "trout plan."

Written comments will be accepted through July 5, 2019. Send comments to or fill out the online survey by visiting, search "program guidance."
