Lake Michigan tributaries stocked with steelhead trout, Dec. 16-17
Start Date: 12/17/2019
Event Description:

DNR stocked approximately 120,000 Michigan-strain steelhead trout into three locations along Lake Michigan this week.

On Dec. 16, approximately 40,000 fish were stocked into the Little Calumet at Mineral Springs Road. On Dec. 17, another 40,000 were stocked into Trail Creek at Meer Road and Salt Creek at West County Road 600 North.

These fish measure approximately 4.25 inches and will stay in the streams until spring before migrating to Lake Michigan. Once there, the fish will spend two to three years in Lake Michigan and return to the streams they were stocked into to spawn.

Anglers should take care when fishing these areas if they catch undersized trout. These fish are under the legal size limit and are sensitive to being caught. If you are catching these fish, consider moving to a different area of the stream or try switching your method of fishing. These new fish are crucial to the continued existence of the fishery.
