MADISON - State forest health specialists remind campers and travelers that firewood can carry harmful insects and diseases that can travel with firewood if it is moved around the state.

"Insect pests such as emerald ash borer and gypsy moth, and diseases like oak wilt and Dutch elm disease spread to new areas easily while hidden in firewood," said Andrea Diss-Torrance, invasive forest insects program coordinator with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. "A few simple steps can help you avoid moving these problems around."

All travelers should follow quarantine rules to help protect Wisconsin's trees and avoid fines.

Second homeowners are advised not to move firewood long distances between their properties, to reduce the risk to their trees.

For more details about firewood in Wisconsin search the DNR website,, for keyword "firewood" or call 1-877-303-WOOD (9663).

News #1    Northern anglers encouraged to measure and count this Memorial Day weekend
MADISON -- There's great fishing in store on northern Wisconsin lakes this Memorial Day weekend and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is encouraging visiting anglers and returning cabin owners to familiarize themselves with some updated rules before heading out for walleye.

Highlights of the new and upcoming changes include:

A three walleye daily bag limit is now in place on most waters in Wisconsin's Ceded Territory.

DNR developed the three walleye daily bag limit to manage the northern walleye fishery after listening to citizens and stakeholders eager for more predictable and uniform angling regulations on lakes in the region. The new regulations replace the previous system of annually adjusting bag limits to account for tribal harvest activity.

To learn more about the three-bag limit and other rule updates, search the DNR website, for fishing regulations. For background information on the tribal and recreational fishery and Chippewa treaty rights, search for Ceded Territory.

News #2   Will 2015 musky season produce new record from Green Bay? Season opens in northern zone waters on May 23
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- While size and bag limits are the subject of frequent discussion among many anglers, there's one group of fishing enthusiasts who are relatively unaffected by such matters: musky hunters.

A glance at online fishing forums indicates most musky anglers would never keep a musky unless they believed the fish was unlikely to survive or it was a record fish. Steve Hogler, a senior fisheries biologist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, says his experience with musky anglers on Green Bay and the Menominee River bears this out.

"Over time, our creel surveys have indicated fewer than 10 musky per year are actually being harvested from Green Bay," Hogler said. "For the anglers who have kept the fish, either it's the largest fish they've ever caught in their life or they have a firm belief that it couldn't be released healthy, maybe because it swallowed the bait too far. When we went to increase the size limit from 50 to 54 inches in 2014, we had very few complaints from musky hunters because the anglers already viewed it as a trophy fishery."

Buying a fishing license is easy and convenient over the Internet through the Online Licensing Center on the DNR website, at all authorized license agents, at DNR Service Centers (Hours for service centers vary; check the DNR website for service center days and hours of operation; DNR Service Centers are not open on Saturdays), or by calling toll-free 1-877-LICENSE (1-877-945-4236).
