Interested in muskie, bass or invasive species? Learn more at the Lake St. Clair Fisheries Workshop! You’ll also learn why Lake St. Clair is widely regarded as one of North America’s greatest fishing lakes.

If you attended the 2015 Lake St. Clair Fisheries Workshop, you’ll want to put Thursday, April 14, 2016, on your calendar – the date of this year’s workshop.  And if you didn’t attend last year’s workshop, you won’t want to miss this opportunity—so mark your calendar. The free workshop is open to the public and will include information of interest to anglers of all ages, charter captains, resource professionals, and anyone interested the Lake St. Clair fishery.

Michigan Sea Grant and Michigan State University Extension, in partnership with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Lake St. Clair Fisheries Research Station, the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, and the Macomb County Department of Planning and Economic Development, will be hosting this year’s evening workshop.

The 2016 workshop will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., in a new location! This year we will be close to Lake St. Clair atSportsmen’s Direct, 38989 Jefferson Avenue in Harrison Township, located just north of the entrance to Lake St. Clair Metropark. In addition to providing a Lake St. Clair fishery status update for 2016, speakers will address the topics of invasive species of the St. Clair-Detroit River System (formerly called the Huron to Erie Corridor), improving access to Lake St. Clair, the effects of fishing on bass, and the question “are there really too many muskie in Lake St. Clair?”
