I’ve been impressed recently with the good work of DIF&W Fisheries biologist Tim Obrey, who heads up the team in the Moosehead Lake region, a very large and important place for our fish.

Tim’s recent report on Moosehead Lake smelts is interesting, and gives you a look at the detailed research they do. You can read Tim’s report here:
