Regional Creel Surveys

An intensive year-round survey is being conducted on 19 reservoirs in the Salt Valley region of southeast Nebraska. The survey will provide baseline data necessary to develop a model predicting temporal and spatial participation of anglers.

This model will be especially useful for understanding changes in fishing pressure on specific reservoirs as influenced by conditions at near-by reservoirs such as water drawdowns for repairs to in-reservoir structures, out-breaks of blue-green algae, etc.
