DNR Launches Trout Advisory Team

Anglers and other people interested in Wisconsin’s trout resources are invited to apply to serve on an advisory team that will help the Department of Natural Resources start developing a plan to guide trout management over the next decade. The plan would address trout habitat, stocking, and other management issues in Wisconsin. The advisory team would meet on three Saturdays in winter 2018 and would help the DNR brainstorm issues, set broad goals and define needs, said Joanna Griffin, DNR’s trout coordinator. “We’re looking for people who are not members of organizations like the Conservation Congress and Trout Unlimited that will already have representatives on the advisory team,” Griffin said. “People do not need to be trout anglers, but have an interest in the future of Wisconsin’s trout resources.” Those interested in serving on the advisory team can fill out an online form through Nov. 30. Four people will be selected by DNR’s trout team to serve on the advisory team as at-large members, one from each of four regions. Search the DNR website,, for “trout management” to apply.
