Green Bay Guide Information

In order to better manage the fisheries of Green Bay and Lake Michigan the WDNR is implementing guiding requirements for guides operating on Wisconsin waters of the Great Lakes already established under NR 20.65 Report of Licensed Guides.  We will be requiring guided trip information for Wisconsin waters of Green Bay during the ice fishing season only.  This information is very important to our management of several species of fish in Green Bay and will greatly supplement our standard creel survey program.

Department of Natural Resources staff including representatives from Fisheries and Law Enforcement will be holding an informational meeting to discuss these reporting requirements, answer questions, and gather feedback. The date, time, and location of the meeting are listed below. 

Monday, December 19, 2016
6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Brown County Library, 515 Pine St, Green Bay, WI 54301
