2021 Lake Huron Fisheries Workshop – Nearshore Fisheries Session
April 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
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.

- Introductions (Michigan Sea Grant)
