Maine Seeks Help with Smelt
January 9, 2015
The Maine Department of Marine Resources is asking the public for help in collecting data on rainbow smelt.
Smelt anglers who volunteer for the program are asked to collect data in a logbook about both ice fishing and the spring fishery. The angler records information about fish harvested or released during each trip for themselves and any fishing companions. Information about each trip is also recorded, including time spent fishing, location fished, number of anglers, lengths of fish, and other species caught. At the end of the season each angler mails his/her logbook to us, which we then copy and send back to the angler.
