Coordinated management efforts by Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service produce angler benefits
MILWAUKEE - In a remarkable feat of distance swimming, tiny chinook salmon released in Lake Huron two years ago swam their way through the Straits of Mackinac and down through Lake Michigan into the waters off of Racine, according to newly released data gathered with the help of Wisconsin anglers.

The study documenting the movement of fish throughout the lakes also indicates that natural reproduction of chinooks is picking up steam in Lake Michigan. For chinooks that are one year old, 55 percent of the population now comes from natural reproduction.

Kudo's to cooperative efforts in Great Lakes Fisheries Management. As the story shows its going to take a combined effort to make it work!
