MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Anglers will get a chance to sound off next month on how the state could simplify its fishing rules.
The Wisconsin Conversation Congress will pose a host of questions to outdoor lovers at its annual spring hearings April 9. One of the more prominent questions is how the state Department of Natural Resources could streamline fishing regulations, which are currently spread across six separate regulation pamphlets. Proposals include allowing year-round fishing and creating a single statewide musky season rather than different seasons in northern and southern Wisconsin.
The congress, which advises the DNR on policy issues, will hold hearings in every Wisconsin county on April 9. A list of meeting locations is available on the DNR's website, http://dnr.wi.gov/ and at DNR service centers.
