LANSING, Mich. (AP) - State wildlife biologists are looking for anglers to help evaluate experimental trout regulations in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula for the second consecutive year.

As in 2013, participants will be able to harvest 10 brook trout per day on five stream segments during the designated season.

This year’s Michigan fishing guide specifies where the limit applies on portions of the East Branch Ontonagon, East Branch Huron, Dead, Driggs and East Branch Tahquamenon rivers.

Information provided by anglers will enable the Department of Natural Resources’ Fisheries Division to compare the effectiveness of rules applied to different streams in the U.P.

Anglers can give input by speaking to creel clerks who will be stationed on some streams, mailing postcards or responding to an online survey.
