LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The latest information about the condition of Lake Michigan’s fish resources is available from the state Department of Natural Resources.

The DNR has posted a two-page document to its website. It answers many of the questions frequently raised by anglers and other members of the public, especially regarding salmon.

Among issues the document addresses are whether the salmon population will decline in Lake Michigan as it has in Lake Huron and whether stocking cuts and possession limits will be enough. Another frequently asked question is why Chinook salmon won’t eat gobies.

Fisheries Division Chief Jim Dexter says the DNR’s responses will paint a clearer picture of how sport fish populations are faring and what it means for anglers pursuing them.

The document is available at https://www.michigan.gov/fishing .
