Schedule

Friday, July 12

  • Check-in @ Pere Marquette River Lodge between 3-7pm
  • Social / Reception at 6pm
  • Special Presentation: Nicole Watson, Arctic Grayling Project / Rewild Michigan
    Nicole WatsonNicole Watson, PhD Candidate from Michigan State University Fisheries and Wildlife Department will talk about a subject she is very passionate about … bringing Arctic Grayling back to Michigan’s cold-water streams. She will share her experiences with predatory and competitive interactions between young Grayling and resident Brook and Brown trout which may be one of the greatest hurdles to overcome for a successful reintroduction. Nicole’s research examines predation by young Brook and Brown trout on newly hatched Grayling fry and competition between age-0 Grayling and Brook and Brown trout of the same year class. She also investigates early-life imprinting to home-waters of Arctic Grayling. The information learned through this research will provide guidance to the reintroduction program and aid in the selection of suitable streams based on fish community structure. Nicole will also give some insight to the group about proper fish handling for successful Catch and Release fishing.
