Lake Trout Tagging and How to Identify Planted Fish

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Did you know that some of the lake trout we catch are planted and reared in a fishery?
The Michigan DNR has been doing lake trout plantings from Copper Harbor and around the Upper and Lower Peninsula for many years. They also plant speckled trout, brown trout, steelhead and salmon. Here is an interesting video by TV 6 of Marquette that shows the tagging process. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjP_N3GLw5U

Thanks to the Harvey, Michigan DNR for keeping our Lake Superior fisheries going strong. This fishery link also has an interesting video on their process of hatching fish in the fishery.
