Chapter Meeting Mar 7

Annual Business Meeting and WDNR Reports

Upcoming Board Member Election
Kiap-TU-Wish elects board members at its March chapter meeting. This year two board members, Loren Hass and Allison Jacobs, are running for re-election. Suzanne Constantini has been nominated to run in the open board position created by the retirement of the current president, Tom Schnadt. Based on Kiap’s bylaws the immediate past president shall be an ex-officio member
of the Board of Directors for the term of his or her successor. Suzanne grew up in a family that enjoyed trout fishing. Her dad and husband were faithful trout fishermen and always looked forward to opening weekend. Suzanne now joins her husband Ed fly fishing on local streams. Suzanne enjoyed a long career in the nursing profession and held a number of managerial positions during her career. Her skill and talent will be a great asset for the chapter.

“Wisconsin’s Inland Trout Populations: 2018 Update on Trends and Research” by Matt Mitro

Matt Mitro, Coldwater Fisheries Research Scientist at WDNR, will be speaking about Wisconsin’s inland trout populations at our January 3rd chapter meeting. He’ll give us an overview of recently completed and ongoing trout research projects such as the use of archival tags to measure thermal habitat use by brown trout during summer; the distribution, prevalence, and intensity of gill lice infecting brook trout in Wisconsin streams; temporal trends in trout abundance and recruitment; and brook and brown trout age and growth.

Matt will also fill us in on what’s next for trout research in Wisconsin and answer any of our questions on trout research or management issues.
