NY agency stocks herring into Lake Ontario

  #
State wildlife biologists are stocking native herring in Lake Ontario near Rochester this week to provide nutritious prey for trout and salmon.

New York Environmental Conservation Commissioner Joe Martens says re-establishing spawning populations of lake herring will diversify the prey fish community and add stability to the lake's ecosystem.

The state agency recently stocked another native prey fish, the bloater, into Lake Ontario. more...

Michigan expands Great Lakes muskie stock

  #

The muskie production program of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has turned a huge corner by stocking only Great Lakes muskies.

DNR’s Fish Production Section operates six large fish hatcheries, including the Wolf Lake State Fish Hatchery in Mattawan which the muskie program belongs to.

Based on the department’s figures, hatcheries produce 13 million trout and salmon and 30 million walleye, muskie and sturgeon annually. That’s a total 600,000-700,000 pounds of fish a year stocked in the state’s public waters.

The department has raised muskellunge for stocking for decades but had always used northern muskies. This is the second year it produced strictly Great Lakes muskies.  more...

White bass are running wild in Lake Michigan

  #
Chris Barcelona knows goofy fish on Lake Michigan. Working years at Chicago’s water filtration plant will do that.

But even he can be surprised. Say, by a white bass run on Lake Michigan off downtown Chicago.

“I worked the south filtration plant for 25 years and know every inch of the South Side end of the lake and caught three-foot salamanders to anything you can name,’’ Barcelona said. ‘‘When we dropped the intake basins, there would be gar and buffalo that were five-feet long because they lived their whole lives in there. I caught everything out of that lake.’’  more...

Some see dollar signs in invasive fish

  #
 In 1673, French explorer Père Marquette traveled down the Illinois River. In his journal, he wrote of encounters with "monstrous fish" so large they nearly overturned his canoe. In all likelihood the fish Marquette was talking about were channel catfish, but nearly 340 years later another monster now harasses boaters on the Illinois -– the Asian Carp.
 
"Oh everybody hates ‘em, except for people that shoot ‘em and stuff like that. I hate ‘em when I’m trying to tube with my kids, but then when we’re trying to shoot ‘em I like them. So it’s a love-hate thing," said Josh Havens, a fisherman.  more...

Fish meetings mainly historical

  #
TRAVERSE CITY — Fish passage up Great Lakes river systems is a hotly contested topic.

But meetings on the subject this week at the Hagerty Center seemed more like history and science lessons for the 80 to 100 people who attended.

Dave Downer, a Boardman River resident, said he attended because he's concerned about what will happen if lake-run Great Lakes fish like Pacific salmon and other species are allowed farther upstream when Sabin, Brown Bridge and Boardman dams are removed. Brown Bridge Dam is being dismantled now and the other two structures are slated for removal by 2015 as part of the massive Boardman River restoration project.  more...

  #
large-salmon1.JPGA first-time salmon fisherman caught one of the largest – if not the largest – Chinook salmon of the year Sunday morning while fishing from a Muskegon-based charter boat on Lake Michigan.

Jeff Smith, 36, of Grand Rapids, reeled in the 25-pound King while fishing with four co-workers and friends on Steelhead Charters out of Pointe Marine in Muskegon. Smith, who has fished for mainly bass on and off for the last 15 years, said he is now hooked on salmon fishing. more...

DEC adopts new freshwater fishing regulations

  #

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has adopted some new freshwater fishing regulations, the DEC announced this week.

The slight changes to the current regulations will take effect starting Oct. 1, and will be in place through 2014.
 
“New York provides some of the best fishing in the nation and, periodically, DEC modifies existing freshwater sportfishing regulations to enhance fishing opportunities for anglers throughout New York,” said Assistant Commissioner for Natural Resources Kathy Moser. “Input received from anglers and other stakeholders during the public comment period earlier this year resulted in some suggestions becoming incorporated in the final changes announced today.”  more...

Yellow perch fishery needs a lift

  #

A full moon climbed into a darkening summer sky east of Milwaukee.

A light breeze offered relief from the heat and propelled dozens of sailboats across the watery horizon.

Just below the shoreline bluff, several hundred people gathered on blankets and folding chairs for an open-air concert.

The early August evening was right out of a Chamber of Commerce catalog. Almost.

The piers and other shoreline fishing spots were nearly vacant.

Areas that once held shoulder-to-shoulder crowds of anglers had just a straggle of pedestrians and joggers.  more...

Lake sturgeon population still rare

  #
Lake sturgeon can grow to lengths of six feet, weights of 200-plus pounds and live to be a century old, though not many do.

While the larger fish are extremely rare, the population of smaller, younger lake sturgeon seems to be expanding quickly.

"They're still pretty rare," said Jeff Tyson, an ODNR biologist at the Sandusky Fish Research Unit. "On a good year we'll have 30 to 40 reported sightings."  more...

Lake Michigan swimming with salmon this spring

  #

Well, at least we got to see some nice salmon.

Jonathan Dunn is a Chicago angler who trailers his vintage 23-foot Starcraft to Michigan a dozen times each summer to fish salmon, and I usually join him for three or four trips.

We heard the lake has been hot all spring, producing not just a lot of chinooks but good numbers more than 20 pounds. But our planned two-day foray was wiped out by a powerful northwest front that made Lake Michigan unsafe for anything smaller than a cruise liner.  more...
