Vermillion Reservoir Trapnetting Project

On Aug. 8,9,10th/12, the Vermillion Reservoir Trapnetting Assessment was conducted to determine fish populations within the reservoir. Several year classes of Smallmouth Bass were sampled, tagged and released, suggesting natural reproduction of the bass population. This project also suggested that there is suitable habitat and area to establish a possible Walleye fishery that will take place in October/12 in this waterbody. The project was conducted by ISFE and WSD Fisheries.
