Steelhead Biology and Management: a historical perspective

In 1991, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources fishery biologists prepared a document summarizing the current understanding of Brule River steelhead biology. Anglers who provided their mailing address during a 1990 steelhead season creel census received the resulting document. This was the initial effort by fisheries managers to educate anglers regarding needed regulatory changes leading to our present set of steelhead regulations. The Club’s sister organization, the Lake Superior Steelhead Association (click on LSSA for information), funded the document’s printing along with the postage to mail it.
