In November 2019, the Michigan Natural Resources Commission voted 3-2 to amend Fisheries Order 200.20 to reinstate a 10 brook trout daily bag limit regulation on 33 sections of streams in the Upper Peninsula. The NRC issued the Order despite comment provided by Michigan Trout Unlimited opposing it and despite DNR Director Dan Eichinger publicly stating the DNR’s opposition to the reinstatement of the 10 brook trout bag limits based on known scientific evidence.
