The DNR is seeking the public’s input on panfishing at a meeting this evening in Rhinelander.
Tonight’s public meeting is one of 28 being held in March by the DNR’s fisheries managers to discuss the future of panfish management in Wisconsin.
The event will also include a brief presentation about long-term trends in panfish size and numbers. A DNR biologist will be on hand present information related to stocking, surveys, and proposed regulation changes.
The DNR has had management plans for walleye, bass, musky and northern, and some believe panfish deserve that same attention.
Tonight’s meeting will be at the Rhinelander DNR Service Center on Sutliff Avenue, starting at 7.
