Brook Trout in the Northwoods: Present and Future

Brook trout are the iconic fish of inland streams in the eastern U.S. It’s clear that numbers of brook trout are down in many tributaries to Lake Superior, but where are they doing well, and why? This question led to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Status and Distribution of Brook Trout in the Lake

Superior Basin project. Henry Quinlan will present findings from this project, which utilized data from many partner agencies and benefited from the field assistance of Trout Unlimited volunteers.

The brook trout population in northern Wisconsin relies upon clean, cold water, yet warming trends are predicted across our region. Quinlan will explore future temperature scenarios and provide insights with regard to future brook trout conservation and restoration efforts. The recent formation of the Lake Superior Landscape Restoration Partnership to improve water quality and restore wildlife (including fish) habitat for at-risk species in our area and opportunities for landowner involvement through My Lake Superior Northwoods will also be addressed.
