OHIO DNR fish survey available 2012.05.09

Written by David Green.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) Division of Wildlife invites anglers to visit www.ohiodnr.com/creel to take an on-line angler survey.

The on-line survey seeks input on a variety of topics including hybrid striped bass fisheries, Division of Wildlife fishing maps and “no-wake/idle speed” use of motors with unlimited horsepower on small lakes that currently have 10 horsepower or electric motor-only restrictions.

The on-line survey will be available through July 31. Responses to the survey are confidential. Information provided by anglers through the surveys is vital to the successful management of Ohio's fisheries, and the Division of Wildlife encourages all anglers to participate.

Fisheries biologists use angler survey data in combination with biological data from fish populations to identify ways of improving fishing on Ohio's inland reservoirs, lakes, rivers and Lake Erie.
