Lake Michigan Citizens Advisory Committe

Post by Capt. MWilliams »

Just wanted to post the outcome of our first meeting. A lot of good discussion but the main points and focus of course was on stocking and the Zonal management.

The Zonal Management concept was reviewed. Turning Point polling indicated that 50% really liked it, 25% liked it, and 25% thought it was ok. Additional options will be forth coming.

On November 8th, 2017, a news article will be released announcing the public comment period for the Draft Lake Michigan Fishery Management Plan and to seek feedback on potential stocking options for Lake Michigan.

The Draft Lake Michigan Management Plan can be viewed and feedback can be provided through a web site hosted by Michigan Sea Grant at:

The stocking options are available on the MDNR web site at: ... 5455_7.pdf

Three public meetings have been set for the end of November:

· November 28th, 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM, Comfort Inn Conference Room, 617 E. Lake Shore Dr., Manistique, MI 49854

· November 29th, 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM, Boardman River Nature Center, 1450 Cass Road, Traverse City, MI 49685

· November 30th, 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM, Loutit District Library, 407 Columbus Ave, Grand Haven, MI 49417

Also, the Natural Resources Commission will receive an update on these topics at their November 9th commission meeting.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. Thanks for all your input and feedback to date, and I will report back to you with a summary of the public comments received.
