Angler Surveys at Launches and Piers

Creel clerks will be assigned to boat launches and piers around the state. They'll survey anglers about matters such as trip length, target species and the number and type of fish caught. They may also ask to measure or weigh fish and take scales or other body parts for aging. Learn more about creel clerks and angler surveys.
