On April 8th, 2015, we had the pleasure of having Heather Hettinger, Fisheries Management Biologist with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, talk about the most recent survey of the Boyne River by the DNR, which was done in 2012. The entire Boyne River is classified as a cold water stream and as a designated trout stream by the MDNR. There is a long and diverse fish stocking history on the Boyne, including Atlantic salmon (discontinued due to poor survival rates), steelhead and brown trout.
The most recent fish survey indicates the presence of 18 additional fish such as bluegill, black nose dace, brown bullhead, creek chub, green sunfish, rock bass, sculpin and smallmouth bass.
