The publication, made available by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, contains fish sampling data, along with a forecast of where anglers may find large quantities and large sizes of certain fish in the state.
State biologists sample fish populations annually. Some of the largest bodies of waters are sampled every year, while other fisheries are sampled once every few years. The sampling gives the agency information needed to manage fish populations, but is also a good predictor of the fishing that can be expected in the coming year.
The 2014 Fishing Forecast may be found at www.OutdoorNebraska.org or wherever fishing permits are sold. Fishing regulations have not changed for 2014.
