Are you interested in local and statewide fisheries management activities in Lake Huron and want to discuss them with Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Fisheries Division staff? Then check out this upcoming opportunity to chat with fisheries experts!

On Thursday, May 6 from 6-7 p.m. EST, Michigan State University Extension and Michigan Sea Grant, and the DNR are hosting a digital Conversations & Coffee meeting. In a webinar-format, attendees can ask questions related to fishing regulations and the state’s fisheries directly to the DNR. DNR staff will also share 2020-2021 information about local and statewide regulation changes impacting anglers in Lake Huron.

Fishing rules and regulations are updated annually based on information collected in the previous year. The Michigan Fishing Guide (2019-20 version) is published each year and the rules apply from April 1, 2020-March 31, 2021 (upcoming regulations from 2021-2022).

“This is a great opportunity to get input from Michigan anglers on new and proposed fishing regulations,” said Randy Claramunt, MDNR, Fisheries Division, Lake Huron Basin Coordinator.

In addition to the live event the webinar will be recorded, and the link to the recorded version will be sent to all registrants. However, attending the live webinar is encouraged to have questions answered directly by experts. Following the webinar, the recording will be closed captioned and uploaded to MI Sea Grant’s YouTube page.
