The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will be hosting a public meeting on Wednesday, October 18th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Lecture Hall at Crossroads at Big Creek to discuss the smallmouth bass fishery in waters surrounding Door County. The meeting is intended to share management information and engage stakeholders on the topic. Information has been collected over the last few years, and Scott Hansen, DNR Fisheries Biologist, is pleased with the success of their efforts with the smallmouth bass in the area.
The meeting will include information on fishery sampling and the sport survey. Management plans with respect to smallmouth bass going forward will also be discussed. Those interested in hearing about the current issues and future plans as well as voicing their satisfaction of area smallmouth bass fishing are encouraged to attend.
