Spring fishery workshops - online this year - offer current research and information related to the status of the Lake Huron fishery.

Michigan Sea Grant and Michigan State University Extension, in partnership with the Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Division, USGS Great Lakes Science Center, US Fish and Wildlife Service, and local fishery organizations annually host evening regional workshops across Lake Huron’s coastline. 

Workshops are free and open to the public, these online workshops will provide valuable information for anglers, charter captains, resource professionals, and interested community members. This workshop includes topics such as fish populations and angler catch data, forage or prey fish surveys, offshore fisheries, along with fisheries management activities and other Lake Huron topics of local interest. Workshops provide valuable information for anglers, charter captains, resource professionals, and interested community members.

This workshop also focuses on popular nearshore fisheries of Lake Huron such as Saginaw Bay fisheries, including Yellow Perch and Walleye fisheries updates, Les Cheneaux Island area and St. Marys River fisheries.

These workshops are typically held across coastal Lake Huron communities each year, but due to novel coronavirus and social distancing guidelines we are hosting a variation of this year's workshops in a virtual, online format using a platform called Zoom.

Agenda for webinar is tentatively planned as follows:

  • Introductions (Brandon Schroeder, Michigan Sea Grant)
  • Les Cheneaux Islands Fish Community Survey (Dave Fielder, DNR Fisheries Research)
  • St. Mary’s River Area Fisheries Updates (Neal Godby, DNR Fisheries)
  • Saginaw Bay Walleye and Yellow Perch Fisheries (Dave Fielder, DNR Fisheries Research)
  • Cisco Restoration in Lake Huron (Kevin McDonnell, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service)
  • Cormorant Management Updates (Tony Aderman, USDA Wildlife Services)
  • Management Updates (Randy Claramunt, Dave Borgeson, and Jeff Jolley, DNR Fisheries Management)

Registration for this event is free, but you must register.

A link to the Zoom webinar will be provided to all registrants once registration is confirmed, and again on the morning of April 29.
