fishing man boatFRANKFORT, Ky. (7/23/13) – A randomly selected group of catfish and trout anglers in Kentucky will receive a survey this week to gauge their thoughts on management of these species.
 
"These surveys are a great way for anglers to provide feedback to the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources," said department Fisheries Biologist Dave Dreves. "We really want people to respond - these angler attitude surveys help us gauge public opinion on management issues."
 
Forms are being sent to 1,800 catfish anglers and 1,800 trout permit holders. Names were selected at random.
 
Ohio River Fisheries Biologist Jason Herrala said the catfish survey seeks angler opinions on topics such as size and creel limits. The department also seeks angler attitudes about pay lakes, Fishing in Neighborhoods (FINs) lakes and regulations concerning the Ohio River.
 
Dreves said the trout survey seeks opinions on stocking rates, size and creel limits, fishing methods and more. Anglers also will be asked a series of in-depth questions, such as whether they prefer the department to stock fewer but bigger trout in certain bodies of water.
 
Participants with questions about the surveys may call Dreves or Herrala at 1-800-858-1549 weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Eastern).
