The future of Michigan’s state fish is in jeopardy. You can help.
Although nearly all of the northern Michigan rivers that connect to the Great Lakes teem with steelhead and salmon, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources wants to send steelhead, a non-native species, up the Boardman River. Doing so would decimate a self-sustaining wild brook trout fishery that has seen a resurgence due to the removals of three hydroelectric dams and a cooling of the river.
Find out how you can add your voice to the many voices who are telling the DNR that adding steelhead to the Boardman River is bad public policy.
