Skams, Chambers Creek, and Ganaraska.
The WiDNR nixed one of the strains, sighting poor returns and average size being smaller than Skams. The catch here: our summer river temps are too high for salmonids to survive, so a summer run would have great chance of just ending up as shoreline carpeting.
I get it though as Skams are bigger in size - and the WiDNR wants its return on the investment - so they play to the charters. With baitfish crashing, clarity issue (the GL are getting too clear in some spots due to invasive mussels), and other challenges, the DNR is propping up bigger fish to be caught in the lake so the charters can continue to operate.
The truth behind this:
it is all charterboat welfare bullshit. The DNRs don't know what to do with the mess that is now the GL Frankenfishery, so they play to the charterboat lobbyists.
One upside - they are considering to re-introduce coaster brook trout. Which seems odd to me, since they have pretty much sold out lake trout for chinook since the charterboats "prefer" chinook...it's a real fucking shame.
This is Almighty - standing by, over.
