10 fishing developments tee up great 2011 fishing

othernewsMADISON – Wisconsin anglers can look forward to more great fishing opportunities in 2011 as anglers turn the page on a record-setting 2010, state fisheries officials say.

“We realize how critically important fishing is in Wisconsin both as a cultural activity and as a part of our economy,” says Mike Staggs, Department of Natural Resources fisheries director. “We’ve worked hard to improve fishing in Wisconsin. Anglers enjoyed the results of that work in 2010, and should continue to see more of the same in 2011 and beyond.”

10 Signs of Good Fishing in 2011

Nearly half of Wisconsin adults say they fish, and they catch 88 million fish annually, based on DNR’s 2006-7 statewide mail survey of anglers. Fishing generates $2.75 billion in economic impact in the state, supports more than 30,000 jobs, and provides $195 million in tax revenue for state and local governments. DNR’s fisheries program receives no state tax dollars but is wholly supported by fishing license sales and federal grants.

Here are the top 10 events/developments of 2010 that foreshadow even better fishing opportunities in 2011 and beyond.

1. State record lake sturgeon speared.
2. World record brown trout pulled from Lake Michigan near Racine.
3. Trout fishing opportunities grow with addition of 58 new trout waters.
4. Wild Rose Fish Hatchery is renovated, producing more and healthier fish.
5. Recovery of lake trout in Lake Superior.
6. Large-scale Mississippi River habitat projects improve fishing.
7. Trophy musky haul among the top three.
8. Wisconsin maintains a solid walleye fishery that accommodates sport and tribal harvest.
9. Successful containment of VHS fish virus so far and implementation of rules that will help protect gainst the next big (or microscopic) invader.
10. Chinook harvests hit record levels.
