LANSING, MI (WNEM) -
Michigan residents looking for fishing information can access the 2013 fishing guide. The guide is published by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and includes rules and regulations effective from April 1, 2013 through March 31, 2014. Copies of the guide can be obtained at any location where fishing licenses are sold.
The state agency says this year's guide is a reflection of an effort by the DNR to make improvements to the annual publication. In the spring of 2012, the DNR conducted a series of focus groups across the state and an online survey to solicit input for how the DNR could improve the annual fishing guide. Though not all suggestions could be incorporated, the DNR says the following changes have been implemented in the 2013 guide:
Higher-quality paper to better withstand the wear and tear of fishing in Michigan
A smaller physical size (better able to fit in anglers' tackle boxes)
Easier-to-read font size
"We really appreciate the vast public input we received as we worked to revamp our annual fishing guide," said Jim Dexter, DNR Fisheries Division chief. "We think anglers will find it visually appealing and easier to navigate as they fish their favorite locations."
