MADISON (WKOW) -- The first meeting of a new citizen trout management task force is set to meet on February 16, 2013. The DNR will convene it at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. The meeting is open to the public and is expected to last most of the day.

The DNR created the task force as part of a review of inland trout fishing management. The group is comprised of about 40 people from around Wisconsin who represent the Conservation Congress, conservation organizations and businesses with an interest in trout fishing.

DNR officials want the task force to help set management goals using data gathered from angler surveys and comments from public hearings. The group is expected to meet two or three times this spring.
