Join us as Nick Legler, a Wisconsin biologist for the DNR’s northern Lake Michigan fisheries team, visits us on Tuesday, June 28th at 1 pm for a discussion on Lake Michigan's salmonid fishery and the Wisconsin DNR's role. Lake Michigan's salmonid fishery is important to many anglers including those locally here in Algoma. He has spent the past 10 years working as a fisheries biologist and recently started as a fisheries team supervisor, both in Sturgeon Bay. As a biologist, he works mostly with chinook salmon and steelhead management for Lake Michigan, along with inland fisheries management for Door and Kewaunee Counties.
