MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The state Department of Natural Resources is set to convene the first meeting of a new citizen trout management task force.
The meeting is set for Feb. 16 at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. It's open to the public and is expect 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.
