Trout and Salmon Management funds (ie. stamp hike inquiry)

Recommended Posts

Ok people this is what I recieved so far. This coming in from Mark Ebbers, Trout and Salmon Program Consultant.

Revenue generated from the sales of Trout and Salmon Stamps is deposited into the Trout and Salmon Management Fund. Each Biennium the legislature allocates a portion of this fund to the Division of fisheries.

Trout and Salmon Stamp funds can be spent on the activities listed below(Minnesota Statutes 97A.075, Subd 3).

1) The Development, restoration, maintenance and preservation of trout streams and lakes;
2) Rearing of trout and salmon and stocking of trout and salmon in streams and lakes and Lake Superior;
3) Acquisition of easements and fee title along trout waters;
4) Identifying easement and fee title areas along trout waters
5) Research and special management projects on lake Superior and the anadromous portion
of it's tributaries.

The Table below lists the total amount of Trout and Salmon Management Funds budgeted in fiscal year 2004 by activity.

Activity Amount
1 $211,200
2 $408,200
3 $321,100
4 $7,200
5 $ 82,300
Total $1,030,000

Expenditures from the Trout and Salmon Management Fund for Fiscal year 2000 - fiscal 2002 arelisted in the table below by activity. Expenditures for the fiscal year 2003 have not yet been summarized at this time.

$114,608(activity 1), $336,496(activity 2), $4040(3), 0 (4), $14,068(for activity 5)
Total= $469,212

Fiscal year 2001:

Activity 1 = $205,746
Activity 2 = $443,108
Activity 3 = $0
Activity 4 = $0
Activity 5 = $46,536
Total = $695,390


1 = $95,378
2 = $406,925
3 = $0
4 = $0
5 = $46,835
Total = $549,138

The above figures represent only the expenditures from the Trout and Salmon Stamp Management Fund and not the total expenditure for each activity.

You also requested information on theTrout and Salmon stamp Citizen Oversight Committee.
IN the early 1990's, the legislature authorized the formation of committees to review and report on the expenditure of various DNR funds. The Commissioner of the DNR appoints members to each committee. The Trut and Salmon Stamp Citizen Oversight Committee is made up od a representative from Trout Unlimited, Minnesota Trout Association,
Lake Superior Steelhead Association, and Women Anglers of Minnesoat and one unaffiliated member.

Each November the Division of Fisheries provides the Trout ANd Salmon Stamp Committee with a break down of the previous fiscal years expenditures from the Trout and Salmon Management Fund. After reviewing this document, the committee sumits a report to the legislature and the DNR Commissioner on their findings and recommendations.

    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!
