Fish biologists from the state Department of Environmental Conservation will provide details on the state of the fisheries on Lake Erie and the Niagara River and solicit input from anglers later this month in Woodlawn.
A seminar will include updates on lake sturgeon studies and work in Buffalo Harbor and a newly released steelhead management plan. The seminar will be held at 6:30 p.m. June 27 at the lodge at Woodlawn Beach State Park. Registration is not required.
Anglers will be able to comment and ask questions to DEC fisheries managers.
The event is sponsored by the DEC's Lake Erie Fisheries Unit and Region 9 Fisheries offices.
Presentations will be made on topics related to fishing on Lake Erie and the Upper Niagara River, including information about steelhead, walleye, muskellunge species as well as habitat improvement efforts and new research initiatives in the region.
"DEC is committed to sound management of Lake Erie and Upper Niagara River fisheries to maintain high-quality angling opportunities and associated economic benefits," DEC Regional Director Abby Snyder said. "This event provides an excellent opportunity for anglers to hear directly from the biologists who study and manage Great Lakes fisheries."
