Get out on the lakes and rivers because the fishing season is in full swing!
Growing up in western Wisconsin, I learned to fish in some of the best fishing holes the Midwest has to offer. Today, I enjoy those same beautiful lakes, rivers and streams with my two sons. I work to protect the rights of fishermen and to conserve the waters we all enjoy because it is as much a part of my life as it is of yours.
This year, I’m sponsoring a catch of the day contest. Send me photos of your best catch email@example.com and we’ll post them on our Facebook page. At the end of the season, we’ll select a winner who’ll receive a t-shirt and bragging rights till next year!
How You Can Help?
The House of Representatives recently passed the Upper Mississippi River Basin Protection Act, legislation I authored that calls for the development of a coordinated approach to reducing nutrient and sediment runoff in the Upper Mississippi River Basin. It also establishes a scientific water-quality monitoring system and a computer modeling program to analyze data.
