DNR Considers Brook Trout Changes

The Department of Natural Resources is looking for public input into potential changes for brook trout  fishing in the Upper Peninsula.

The brook trout is native to the Upper Peninsula, a tool that fisheries managers have used to protect and rehabilitate brook trout is possession limits.

Two changes to book trout possessions have been proposed: the first would be to maintain the daily possession of 5 fish, but no more than 3 of the trout would be 15 inches or greater.

The second would be change the daily limit to 5 fish plus an additional 5 brook trout with only 3 allowed to be 15 inches or greater.
