Panfish meetings held statewide

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW)-- The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is holding more than two dozen meetings throughout the state for anglers to share their experiences about fishing for panfish. 

DNR fisheries specialist Joanna Griffin says department officials want to hear from the public on their expectations for panfish fishing to help develop a statewide plan for managing populations.

The DNR has management plans for game fish like walleye, bass, musky, and northern pike, and biologists and some anglers believe the same thing should be done for panfish.

The meetings start February 12 in Stevens Point and end on March 18 in Crivitz.
